Thirsty Thursdays with Miss Go Lightly...

Happy Thirsty Thursday darlings! Last Friday was the first time in a very very long time since I have had a night on the town (a full 3 whole hours!). It was my cousin's birthday and we went to Bordello's; a very chique club/bar  located in Downtown, Los Angeles where throughout the night they feature burlesque shows! I had a great time and all, and if you're in L.A and dig dark decor, and watching burlesque shows, be sure to visit Bordello's.

But Anywho, the point I am trying to make and which brings me to this post, is because I was at the bar, and my little cousin (she's little to me, she's a mere 24 years old) asked me what kind of drink I recommended..and I went blank! I thought, Crikey!  it's been so long that I've been out,  that I don't even know what kind of drink to get for myself, much less recommend one! Boo for me! What happened to me?! I was THEE go to person for drink recommendations, the drink mixologist at parties, and now I'm back to the drawing board, a clueless drink rookie ::pouting:: but no more! and as we say in Spanish "Ya Estuvo"! So going forward, every Thursday you can count on a post where I will recommend a new or revisited cocktail for you! If you have any favorites, by all means, please share the drink knowledge with the rest of us! 

Since it's a tad chilly today, I thought I'd share... 

The Sweater Martini

3/4 oz gin
1/2 oz blue curacao
1/4 oz raspberry liqueur
3 oz cranberry juice
In a cocktail shaker filled with ice, add gin, blue curacao, raspberry liqueur and cranberry juice. Stir until well chilled and strain into a Martini glass. Garnish with a lemon twist.

See you next Thursday for another round!

Oooh, this sounds like my kind of drink. I love all these ingredients. Must jot this down!

PS: I sent your locket the day before yesterday. Hope it gets to you safe and sound!
