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

I’m feelin’ really cool today. So we’re going with some cheap sunglasses drinks and snacks. Hope you’re cool tonight too!


1 1/2 oz vodka
2 1/2 oz 7up
2 1/2 oz cranberry juice
Fill a rocks glass with ice. Add vodka, then fill with equal parts cranberry juice and 7-up.



  • 9 inch round cake baked
  • 1/2 cup chocolate frosting
  • 1 1/2 cups white frosting
  • Pink food coloring or icing color (we used Wilton brand)
  • Gumdrops (we used Sunkist Fruit Gems)
  • Pink sugar sprinkles

Cut the cake in half making sure the curve is gradual (an exaggerated curve will create angular lenses). Cut out a 2 1/2- by 1-inch notch on each side.

Flip one half of the cake over and join the 2 pieces at the bridge.


Create the lenses with chocolate frosting, leaving a 1-inch border around the edge for the rims.

Tint the white frosting pink , then finish frosting the cake. Decorate the pink frames with the sprinkles. Cut the gumdrops in half crosswise, then create star shapes with mini cookie cutters (we used 1/2-inch and 1-inch sizes).


Laugh, learn and liven up your taste buds!
