Shaker Face

I thought I would come back to my blog with a vengeance and put my best shaker face forward. Yes it's been a while but like the best of old friends, you can always come back to where you left off - without any hurt feelings. Upon my return, I offer you a gift, a martini recipe. I recently dusted off one of my many martini shakers after realizing how long it had been seen I sired up a tasty concoction. Well, let me say I have no regrets. I found this fun recipe and as a bonus it offers the benefits of anti-oxidants, so really you can always justify one of these for health reasons. 

Pomegranate Martini

Servings: Serves 2
  • 1 1/2 cups pomegranate juice
  • 2 ounces Absolute Citron vodka or white tequila
  • 1 ounce Cointreau liquor
  • Cup of ice
  • Splash of sparkling water (optional)
  • Squeeze of lemon (optional)
 Shake ingredients in a shaker and put in chilled martini glasses. Put pomegranate fruit into glass as garnish.

Simplifying Your Life

I started a new job recently which reduced my number of days off by half. It has been an adjustment and I would like to say that after a month I have mastered my new routine...but I really just find myself trying to figure out how to find more time. I see moments, days, evenings and weeks flying by robbing me of the things I value most in my life. I knew what I longed for (besides winning the lottery and quitting my job) was to simplify my life and make room for what's important. I found this fabulous list on a site called Zen Habits and just had to share it with you. It rings true in every possible way. Time to re-focus.
