THE AMETHYST MARTINI


http://themartinidiva.com
 
I bought a bottle of Hpnotiq Harmonie because I like the beautiful lavender color.  It's an interesting blend of vodka and cognac infused with berries and the floral qualities of violets, very light and quite interesting with a delicate burn from the two liquors.
 
Because I wanted to keep the color and liked the idea of a bit of effervescence, I mixed it up with some sparkling blueberry pomegranate juice and added just a splash of Blue Curacao to balance the color and add a touch of citrus.
 
It's probably one of the most elegant cocktails I've ever created and perfect as a light, refreshing summer martini:
 
THE AMETHYST MARTINI
 
  2 Oz. Hpnotiq Harmonie
2 Oz. Ocean Spray Sparkling Blueberry Pomegranate
Splash of Blue Curacao
Lemon Twist
 
Chill your glass in the freezer. Add the Harmonie, sparkling fruit juice and the Blue Curacao to a cocktail shaker filled with ice and shake until well chilled. Pour into  your martini glass and garnish with a simple lemon twist.
This is a perfect cocktail for anyone born in February since their birthstone is Amethyst.
