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 juiceFill 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!
