At The End Of The Rainbow…

It’s here!  Our 3 day weekend is just hours ahead.  We’ve survived a long week…lots of hard work…and quite a bit of rain!  I would say we’ve earned the time off…the rainbow at the end of the day…and a peach jalapeno martini to celebrate!

On my drive home from Des Moines tonight, I passed rainbow after rainbow.  It was beautiful!  All week I noticed rainbows popping up here and there…all across the state of Iowa.  As I pulled into the neighborhood at 7pm tonight…I was welcomed home by this one:

“May God grant you…a rainbow for every storm, a smile for every tear, a promise for every care, and a blessing for every trial.  For every problem, may life send a faithful friend to share and an answer to every prayer.” ~Irish Blessing

And at the end of a long week…may He also grant you a Peach Jalapeno Martini!  🙂  LOL

This martini was the perfect complement to our Chipotle Fish Tacos.  Try this duo out this weekend &  Enjoy!

PEACH JALAPENO MARTINI

1 Serving

  • 4oz White Cranberry Juice, chilled
  • 2oz Absolute Peach Vodka
  • Juice of 1/8 Lime (wedge size)
  • 1 Jalapeno, sliced and seeded

Before preparing your martini, place the vodka, shaker, and glass in the freezer for 20-30 minutes.  (We recommend storing your liquor in the freezer for good martinis)  You will want all of these items to be icy cold! 

Combine White Cranberry juice, Absolute Peach Vodka, and lime juice in the shaker.  Shake with ice.  Place a slice of jalapeno in the bottom of your martini glass.  Pour mixture over the top…the jalapeno will float.

For added heat, include the jalapeno slice in the shaker when shaking the ingredients!  Spic-ay! 

Serve immediately.  Mmm Mmm Good!

CHEERS…to a long weekend…rainbows after the rain…and every day indulgences!

Indulge.  In Life.  In Love.  In Food.
