I am a dirty martini girl through and through, no doubt about it. My usual go to: a Greygoose martini, extra dirty with blue cheese stuffed olives. With the exception of the requisite pina colada on the beach, I am not typically one for sweet drinks. I don't like soda and I usually dilute juice with water, but I recently had the most delicious (sweet!) cocktail and I am obsessed! This new found concoction happens to include St. Germain elderflower liquor and pineapple juice, my fave. Introducing the Buttles Bohemian...The perfect not-too-sweet cocktail!
As far as cocktails go, a summertime favorite of mine is homemade fruit infused vodka. Infusing vodka is super easy and you can pretty much create any flavor combination from melon to berries to cucumbers to cinnamon and I have even seen it done with bacon! (Weird or awesome?). Naturally infused vodka is so light and delicious! It tastes nothing like sugary store bought flavored vodkas which use artificial flavoring and sweetener. Add a cute bottle and some ribbon and it makes the perfect hostess gift for all of those summertime parties!
