STRAWBERRY MARTINIS for CALIFORNIA STRAWBERRY DAY


Spring is when all those big, juicy California strawberries start showing up in our local farmer's markets & grocers.  I'm especially fond of the giant strawberries that grow around Watsonville and in central California.  Strawberries the size of a child's fist with long stems that are perfect for dipping in chocolate or for making a cocktail!

Strawberries have many health benefits that are great for a body coming out of a long winter.  My mom used to say that they were great for "cleaning out the blood" and I guess that wasn't so far off the truth as a study from the Harvard Medical School found that strawberries may offer heart disease protection!

All I know is they taste great!  Whether dipped in chocolate, eaten as is, made into desserts or turned into the star of a delicious Strawberry Cocktail!
