MARTINI MONDAY – (enjoy the first evening of the
week with a cool cocktail and a easy snack!)

I’m thinking of a warm summer June day, picking a basket of strawberries and making a delicious drink then a sweet and sour appetizer. Can’t wait 4 months? That’s why they make grocery stores silly…

Cucumber and Strawberry Mojito


1 1/2 oz. gin
3 slice(s) cucumber
2 strawberries
1/2 oz. simple syrup
1/2 oz. lime juice
1 splash(es) soda


Muddle strawberries and cucumber together. Add other ingredients (except soda) and shake. Strain over fresh ice in a highball glass. Top with a splash of soda. Garnish with a half a strawberry and a cucumber slice.

Strawberry-Balsamic Appetizer


12 Triscuit Cracked Pepper & Olive Oil crackers
12 tsp. softened cream cheese
6 ripe, sweet strawberries, halved
Balsamic vinegar


Put a dollop of cream cheese on the cracker, place a delicious strawberry on top, and then drizzle it with vinegar.
(Note: If you can’t find the triscuits, you can mix a little olive oil and lots of cracked black pepper into the cream cheese and use a neutral flavored cracker.)

Laugh, learn and liven up your taste buds!
