I like to have a martini,
Two at the very most.
After three I’m under the table,
after four I’m under my host.
― Dorothy Parker
In celebration of spring, we bring you the perfect Springtime Martini from Anita of A Cocktail Life. While this martini departs from tradition, it looks dangerously delicious, so, in addition to providing you with the recipe, we’d also like to offer this public service announcement: please drink responsibly.
Citrus and pineapple juices add bright, sunny flavor to this gin beverage, and a splash of Aperol imparts a bitter edge with notes of grapefruit. Poured into chilled martini glasses, this mixed drink’s pale peach hue looks just as gorgeous as it tastes.
So gather with friends and raise a glass or two in honor of warming weather, dancing daffodils, and flitting songbirds. And if you decide you need more than two Springtime Martinis, we hope you have better control than Dorothy Parker.
