You've all been asking me for fall martinis this week, which is reasonable considering it's the first week of November. What many of you may not be aware of, however, is the heat wave we've been experiencing here in Southern California! We are being treated to 90 degree temperatures and balmy days reminiscent of the warmest part of summer!
If you think I'm drinking hot apple martinis spiced with cinnamon or a yummy pumpkin pie martini, think again. I'm grabbing the rums, the fresh tropical fruits and as much ice as I can and making myself some refreshing, cooling martinis to sit out in the warm evenings as I contemplate global warming!
These three got me through this week of record breaking heat and it doesn't have to be warm to enjoy them - they're perfect for the dead of winter when you're snowed in and thinking of sandy beaches and vacations by the sea!
