Monday Yums

Those of you that know me know that I absolutely love to host dinners and bake-offs. I love putting together delicious drinks and making desserts that are fantastic and memorable! Since moving back into an apartment, we haven't had the opportunity to host as much as we would like. However, very soon we will be moving out and back into a place where we can host our little hearts out!
I follow some AMAZING blogs that feature recipes that are totally swoon-worthy. So, each Monday, I'm going to start a feature called Monday Yums. Whether it's a recipe I've found online that is too good not to share or one of my signature items, I'm going to share it with my fabulous readers so they can enjoy, too! Drinks, desserts, appetizers - it's all fair game!

If you have a recipe you want to share, drop me a line. I'd be more than happy to feature your tasty dish!

Today, I'm going to feature an absolutely delicious drink recipe. Vodka is by far my favorite alcohol...and martinis are one of my favorite drinks! In honor of the first Ohio State Buckeye game coming up this week, I thought I'd feature a martini that would be perfect for an OSU game party - a red (Go Bucks!) martini to show off what team you're cheering for.

Candy Apple Martini

1 oz vodka
1/2 oz butterscotch schnapps
1 oz Sourz® apple liqueur
1 oz cranberry juice
Maraschino cherries
Granulated sugar

Pour all ingredients into a shaker filled with ice. Strain into a chilled martini glass rimmed in sugar and garnish with a few maraschino cherries. This recipe makes one serving.

SO tasty! This is one of my absolute favorite martinis. Be careful, though! They're pretty strong!
