Hey you. Yeah you. I like you. You’re cute. Your hair is super pretty. Let’s be friends. Friends have drinks together. Let’s have a drink. A pretty pink drink. Yeah, that sounds like something friends would DEFINITELY do together. Let’s do that.
I mean, it’s pink.
But I mean, I really love basil. And I needed it to make you guys that pizza sauce way back when.
It just always smells SOOOO good. And it tastes really good in this martini. It makes me think of summer. It makes me want watermelon and barbeques and smores. How much would I love a smore right now? too much. It’s not good.
I’m losing my mind thinking about summer before it’s even spring. I’m over winter. Can you tell?
Well here my friend: have a martini and thaw out that snow with a warm blanket of vodka.
Vodka martini. Shaken. Not Stirred.
And why yes, yes I am the idiot who shook her martini with NO ice. What the heck was I thinking in that moment? No one knows. I was in a rush people. But honestly, it was good even semi-warm.
So shake one of these babies up and pour yourself a cocktail. You deserve it.
I swear I’m just in love with the color. ITS SO PRETTY.
Disclaimer: I may or may not be tipsy writing you this post.
No further enticement necessary on your part eh? Didn’t think so.
- 2 parts Crystal Light Pink Lemonade
- 1 part citrus vodka
- basil leaves
- Lightly muddle a few basil leaves and combine with pink lemonade and vodka in your cocktail shaker.
- Add a handful of ice and shake to chill.
- Strain into a martini glass.
Don’t make me drink alone. Friends don’t let friends drink alone. <- my motto.
