If one thing is true, it’s that this summer has been a busy one!
Which is why it is nice to be able to find the time to just do something silly, fun, and unimportant every once in a while.
Over the holiday weekend, M suggested we make cocktails, and then pulled out the Star Wars edition Trivial Pursuit game that he bought ages ago off Ebay.
Yes we are big nerds. And I practically won the whole first round before M even had a chance to answer one question! But I love that I can share my real self with the person I chose to spend the rest of my life with. We understand each other so well – there is hardly a more comforting and happy feeling than that. 🙂
But so as not to leave you with only the revelation that M and I are huge geeks, here’s the recipe for the drinks we made!
Chipotle Pineapple “Martini”
1/2 oz Chipotle Simple Syrup (Simmer 2-3 Chipotle peppers -ours were canned in adobo sauce – with 1 cup sugar & 1 cup water for 20 minutes, then strain & cool – store in fridge)
1 oz pineapple juice
1 oz good tequila or rum
Combine all ingredients in a Shaker with ice. Shake vigorously! Pour into martini glasses & enjoy.
