My husband is on a business trip and my children are tucked snugly in their beds, I think it's time for a good movie and a sophisticated drink. Not just any drink will do, it needs to be smooth, slightly sweet, and worthy of a movie like Julie and Julia!
The french martini will fit the occasion perfectly! A french martini is a combination of Vodka, Pineapple juice and Chambord. Not too sweet, smooth and perfect for sipping. Sophisticated enough for a night out with the girls but also festive enough for your next holiday get together.
