Another week, another cocktail. I decided to shake things up a bit and make a martini this week. Get the pun? Shaken, not stirred girls. Anyone else read that and hear Sean Connery's voice in their head? Sean Connery as James Bond will always be a classic, or have I just shown my age?! Oops!

This vodka martini is a delicious break from the hectic week. By combining vodka, black cherry juice, triple sec, and a dash of cinnamon this cocktail recipe is sure to please. The cinnamon is optional, but I think it pulls the cocktail together rather nicely.

Since we were stuck inside so much this week, I decided to play around with the photography a bit. Boy did I make a mess dropping ice cubes into this martini!  Life is messy though, right? I know mine is. But life seems more fun when it's spontaneous and messy anyways! When was the last time you tried something new? I highly recommend it! Shake things up a bit and see what happens!

Black Cherry Martini

Black Cherry Martini Directions

  1. Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice and SHAKE! Do a little dance to if you want, it is the weekend after all! 
  2. Pour into your favorite martini glass and enjoy. 

Feel free to garnish with whatever you wish. I like the plain cherries but to get fancy (dinner parties or cocktail hour) you could dip them in chocolate first and then skewer them. Easy upgrade and definite a wow factor ;) Until next week....

Happy Sipping!
