Once upon a time I went to the bar. I lived at the other end of downtown Toronto, by my university and there were martini bars a plenty. Here there and everywhere. There was one in particular that was my go-to. The name escapes me and has since closed down- or so it seemed from my last drive by. But that is where I went on dates. I am sure the old man who ran the place, who took a sweet liking to me (and showed it by adding an extra chocolate kiss into my chocolatini) wondered what kinda lady I was.
The place was perfect for first dates- close enough that I could walk there and equally close enough that I could ditch out and get home on my own. I feel like last time I had a real martini may have been on my 21st birthday. And I am pretty sure were I to have one, it would not end well. Yes. Even after just one. To be honest- I can't even really imagine drinking that- like pure fire to burn down my liver or something (tweet today's tweetable!)
Now, that's not to say I don't enjoy a great cocktail once in a while. But who says a cocktail has to be fire on the liver? Not me. Not me!
Since Maeve was on the full on Fab Detox, I wanted to help her jazz things up. So we made cocktails. Our style of cocktails.
We took our very fave Living Libations essential oil Tangerine, and dropped it in some bubbly water with a few frozen grapes and of course- our fave glass straw. Then we turned up the heat, put on our swim suits and sat under the overhead lights with shades on and made like it was summer. Or maybe we sat at our desks and just drank it. Whatever. It was awesome.
