Do you have one of those crazy rooms in your home with an odd shape, size or architectural feature that makes no sense? This room is octagonal with windows on 7 sides and high ceilings. It is located off of a family room and not suitable for a breakfast room or dining area.
I suggest enjoying it with a healthy snack, see my recommendation below!
Cosmo sugar rimmer—available at Love of Chocolate in Carytown or other specialty shops
1 small wedge of lime
2 oz citron vodka
1 oz orange flavored liqueur such as Cointreau or Citronge
2 oz limeade
1 oz cranberry juice
Prepare your martini glass by wetting the rim with a small wedge of lime; dip the rim in the cosmo sugar. The sugar should stick nicely to the rim.
Mix the ingredients in a shaker filled with ice.
Shake vigorously and pour.
Figs & Gorgonzola
