The HONEY FITZ SPRITZ MARTINI for JFK's Birthday


Today would have been the 95th birthday of President John Fitzgerald Kennedy and to commemorate the occasion I have created this HONEY FITZ SPRITZ MARTINI named after JFK's Presidential yacht!

It is well known that not only was our 63rd President a Navy man (having been disqualified for service by the Army because of his back issues), but he loved boating and sailing. While in the White House, JFK would often slip away to The Honey Fitz for a few quite hours on the Potomac. On his birthday every year the yacht was brought to the Cape and kept there until the end of September while the family used it most weekends.
Purchase the Honey Fitz Spritz Martini on a fun, mailable Postcard.

To quote another very famous personage:
"HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MR. PRESIDENT"
Fair winds and following seas and long may your big jib draw.

ALCOHOL INFUSED ADULT GRAPE POPSICLES

http://themartinidiva.com/


National Grape Popsicle Day is May 27th and I was asked to come up with a cocktail recipe for the occasion. Since it was already hitting summer temps across most of the country I decided to come up with an alcoholic grape popsicle instead.  They are not only cooling during hot summer days but are a fun way to put some adult* fun in your next summer soiree.

Note: You want the Champagne to be flat, especially if you are using regular popsicle molds because the bubbles (carbon dioxide) could blow the top off your popsicle while freezing.

If you have the right popsicle molds and want to serve them in a glass, I suggest serving them in Champagne flutes then topping them off fresh, chilled Champagne.

GRAPE
BOOZE-SICLES


INGREDIENTS

1 Cup Concord Grape Juice
1 Cup Champagne, allowed to go flat
1 Oz. Fresh Lemon Juice
2 Drops Rose Water

Garnish:
Assorted Colored Sprinkles, Sliced fruits

Optional Glass:
Champagne Flute

Tools: Popsicle Molds, Popsicle Sticks

DIRECTIONS
Add the sprinkles and fruits to the molds you're using.
Combine the grape juice, Champagne and rose water then pour into the molds.
Freeze overnight.
To release dip mold quickly in warm water to release the popsicle.

*I didn't have popsicle molds so I used fun shot glasses and jiggers and made some of my own popsicle sticks. To keep the sticks centered in the popsicle so I just cut a slit in a piece of cardboard, slid my one-of-a-kind popsicle "sticks" through and popped that into my makeshift popsicle cups.



National Grape Popsicle Day is May 27th.

* For the kids you can substitute flat grape soda or plain soda for the Champagne.
