Cucumber Pear Martini

It’s been a very warm winter here in DC (well for us anyway). The last few days have been sunny, unseasonably mild and the air was giving off just a hint of spring…what a tease!

It was too perfect to pass up and we’re renaming it the Downton Lady, and making it for tonight’s episode (and probably for next week’s Season 2 finale too!) Here’s the recipe: Read more →

It’s been a very warm winter here in the Northeast. The last couple of days have been sunny, unseasonably mild and the air was giving off just a hint of spring…what a tease! This weekend we couldn’t resist making a drink that would remind us of the warmer weather. We decided to doctor the traditional gin martini to have just a hint of refreshing fruit flavor, without any of the sweetness. The result is a beautiful, refreshing, but also very grown-up martini that warms up the tummy for the season but reminds us that spring is only eight weeks away! Here’s the recipe: Read more →
