Polka Dot Bikini Spring Martini


While I was out in the garden yesterday watching Chad and Munchkin fly kites, it occurred to me...  It is certainly Spring. If I don't embrace it, I am going to miss it! Spring is one of my favorite times of year.  

Spring Martini Cocktail


Being from Florida, Spring is not just a season it is a fabulous celebration.  People come from all around and flock to the beaches in Florida.  Vacationers party their hearts out in celebration of a break from everything responsible. There is no school, no work, no phones (well this one is optional).  It's almost a holiday.  Except they are off work and you are not.  : (

You can't help think of spring without thinking of fun, bikinis and the water of the gulf of Mexico, a beautiful Caribbean blue.  When Chad created this cocktail, it was as if he stepped out of my mind with the perfect adult beverage to commence our Spring celebration.

A perfectly sweet spring cocktail with orange, pineapple and a delightful hint of coconut to make your vacation (or staycation) perfect!

Kick off your heels and pour yourself one tonight!

Spring Fling Screwdriver Cocktail is as fun to say as it is to drink.  A fab twist on a classic makes this a drink to remember!

A classic sweet Spring Break cocktail that everyone has heard of, but not everyone has had: Sex on the Beach. A must this season!


Not your Grandma's lemonade. This Lucky Lemon Seven lemonade cocktail is a combination of the juices of muddled lemons, 7Up and Grey Goose Vodka!

  2. Loved the look of your Martini, was perfect for our Golden State Warrior play off game. Unfortunately we couldn’t keep the blue and gold from mixing. We ended up with a blue green martini. Still tasted good but we wanted it to be two colors.
