A Merry Martini Night

 

 

Friday night, I hosted the first stop for the progressive Bunco party in my neighborhood. As is the tradition, I always serve a special holiday martini and a few light appetizers to get the evening started. We always have a wonderful time and the martinis always add a festive touch. We gather around the table in my kitchen; adding more chairs and mixing more cocktails as we talk and laugh. We will move on to two more houses up and down the street to play Bunco and do a gift exchange, but it is this first stop with our merry martinis that make the evening feel so festive. We celebrate another year of friendship :-)

To make this Merry Martini, mix 1 part vodka, 1 part apple pucker liqueur and 1 part apple juice in a martini pitcher. When ready to serve, pour in a martini shaker filled with ice, shake well and fill a martini glass with a maraschino cherry in the bottom. Cheers!

Happy Monday!

  2. Sounds like fun! When I make appletini's I take a melon scooper and scoop a round ball of apple and put it on a toothpick. Kind of like an apple olive :-)
