Shake It Up.

Wishing the weekend wasn't over? No worries! Nothing fixes a case of the Mondays like sipping on a pretty little cocktail (or two)! Here are some delicious cocktails that I hope will brighten up your Monday!!! Enjoy =)

1 1/2 oz cirtrus vodka (suggested Ketel One Citroen)
3/4 oz Triple Sec
1/2 oz Chambord Liqueur
1 oz Sweet & Sour mix
Juice from two lemon wedges
lemon twist & sugar for rimming glass, optional

     If desired, rub a lemon wedge around the rim of a martini glass and dip in sugar to coat the rim. In metal mixing tin, fill with ice, add vodka, triple sec, Sweet & Sour and juice from two lemon wedges. Shake thoroughly and strain into chilled martini glass. Pour Chambord down the center of the drink for a layered effect (red bottom, yellow/white up top). Garnish with a lemon twist if desired.

1 1/4 oz. Right Gin
3/4 oz. pomegranate liqueur
2 oz. pomegranate blueberry juice 1/4 oz. blueberry syrup
3 dashes of blood orange bitters
2 lime wedges (squeezed)
1 oz. sparkling wine
Strawberries and blueberries, for garnish

Shake all ingredients except sparkling wine with cubed ice, pour into a highball glass filled with fresh ice, and top with sparkling wine. Garnish with sliced strawberries and blueberries.

1 1/2 oz. pink grapefruit vodka (I like Belvedere)
3 oz. fresh squeezed grapefruit juice
1/2 oz. fresh squeezed lime juice
3 oz. fresh squeezed blood orange juice

Juice your grapefruit, blood oranges and lime. Fill a shaker with ice and combine vodka, grapefruit juice and lime juice. Shake it up and pour into a glass filled with ice. Top with fresh squeezed blood orange juice and a blood orange slice for garnish.
