Cocktail of the Week: Cherry Pop Martini

It's already summer here in Texas and our thoughts turn to ice cream...snow cones...Popsicles. Sticky sweet coldness that soothes the soul.

Only problem?

They're non-alcoholic and don't fit the bill at happy hour one little bit.

The sticky sweet coldness of this high-octane drink will fill in just nicely.

Cherry Pop Martini
Makes one cocktail.

2 ounces vodka
1/4 ounce Amaretto
1/2 ounce grenadine
1/2 ounce lemon juice
1/2 ounce simple syrup

Shake all ingredients together in an ice-filled cocktail shaker. Strain into a martini glass.

Then sit and mockingly laugh at the heat.
