There comes a time every Christmas season when you’ve visited every store possible, crossed off every item on your list and declare with absolute conviction that you are indeed done shopping. This is a magic time. *sniff sniff* Some would say it’s when the spirit of the season really takes hold. Speaking of spirits. It’s also a good time to pull out a little celebration cocktail like this Cîroc Peach Martini.
After all, YOU were the one who braved the stores. YOU were the one that fought for the last parking spot at the furthest corner of the parking lot. YOU were the one who found the very last thing-a-ma-jig on the planet. Yes, YOU, have saved Christmas by ensuring that everyone will get exactly what they want under the tree. So, I support you sister. I stand in solidarity with you and raise my martini glass to salute you. YOU deserve this baby.
Cîroc Peach Martini
1 oz Cîroc Peach
1/2 oz Triple Sec Liqueur
1 oz cranberry juice
3/4 oz fresh lime juice
Combine all ingredients in an ice filled shaker. Shake well and strain into a martini glass. Enjoy.
The kind people at Cîroc sent me a bottle of this to try and at first I was a little confused because it’s made from grapes and it’s vodka. You see what I’m saying right? Only wine comes from grapes in my well-ordered world. How can this be? Well apparently, it’s true. It’s the only vodka made from grapes and it’s yummy. So the grape will now and forever be my favourite fruit on earth. The end.
