Flower Power and Key Lime Martinis

So I spent some time this evening taking pictures of the flowers in the garden. We have a water garden, and since the temperatures finally peaked into the low 80s, everything seems to have exploded into bloom.
This was also an excuse to try out the new lens.....

With the summery evening, we enjoyed a new libation - Key Lime Martinis. We first experienced these lovely drinks last Sunday, during our neighbor's son's HS graduation party. Aside from its refreshing taste, I absolutely love the color of this drink - a beautiful lime green.


The recipe:
2 parts vanilla vodka
2 parts melon liqueur (like Midori, but Scott purchased a knock off brand)
1 part Rose's Sweetened Lime Juice
1 part pineapple juice

Combine in Martini shaker with ice, shake and strain into glasses.

[These drinks fall into the "mixed drinks disguised as Martinis", from my Martini Culture post back in January.]

Ah, summer!

Gorgeous photos! And I'll definitely be trying out that recipe this summer.
