if you HAVE to wash dishes...

...then make yourself a blueberry martini! because let me tell you, it makes that pill a little easier to swallow. we're back home, where i am ashamed to admit that we left a sink full of dishes to deal with upon arrival. nasty, anyway. so--i am a little more focussed on the martini than i am the dishes, which i also think is the Right Thing. last christmas, someone gave me some apple martini mix from stirrings, and it was pretty great. so, i decided to try the blueberry one. it's pretty solid, but i think i am going to try a little vanilla vodka in the next one instead of all plain vodka. y'all remember that freezer full of vodka? well--it's cold weather at last, and that means vodka season has arrived! whoo hoo! screw the dishes. i need another drink.

ps--THK, i am sorry to tell you that we failed to purchase more peppar vodka today. this tragedy will come home to you tomorrow when you are faced with the prospect of NO BLOODY MARYS! but don't worry--i'll come up with something.

heh--it's pretty damned easy since it's from a mix. it's half blueberry martini mix from stirrings and half vodka, shaken with ice of course. they sell these mixes at williams-sonoma and at world market.

get yourself some spicy hot v8 and everything will be ok!

Surfing through the NaBloPoMo Ss, and you caught my attention with my current favorite drink!

Except, you ought to see if you can pick up some Blueberry Stoli! That's how i've been mixing mine; Blue Martinis and Cran&Blue have been my go-to drinks ever since the flavor came out.

Cheers!

in my own defense, i HAVE some blueberry stoli--but man, the mix is pretty damned easy when you're feeling lazy. plus--i'm not prejudiced--i'll try anything once!
