I don't post too many cocktails. I am not a big cocktail drinker. I like my wine on occasion and Dan (hubby) and I have gotten into beer tasting a few times a month.

In fact, I have only posted one other cocktail since I started this blog. http://welcometojustforcooking.blogspot.com/2011/12/holiday-entertaining-tip-3-create.html
My "Muddy Martini" is a delicious take on a traditional "dirty martini." Served over crushed ice, it's great for sipping before a dinner party. I think the color of the drink also looks great on a fall table. And the combination of the lime and the hot sauce makes you want to go, what's in there? It's tangy but smooth; spicy but only a little.
Here is what you need (per drink)
2 shots good quality vodka
3 or four shakes of your favorite hot sauce (more to taste)
Juice of 1/2 lime
1 tbs. black olive juice
4 black olives
Add ice cubes to a cocktail shaker. Add all ingredients. Shake well. Pour over crushed ice and top with four black olives.
Next up; Linguine with hot sausage and clams! Yum!
I'll see you soon!
