Martini Monday: The Bikini Martini

132

The other night, I was drinking these with my husband and talking to my dad on the phone and he asked why they are called a Bikini Martini. I said it was the tropical flavors – coconut rum, pineapple juice. “Oh,” he said. “I was hoping that meant it got girls to take their clothes off.” Har, har, Dad. Nice one. You are sooooo funny.

Anyway, these were really good. Sweet, easy to drink, a little tropical vacation in a glass. Now if I could only dip my toes in a body of water that isn’t hovering in the 40’s and we’d be in business.

  2. Wow, nearly 4 ounces of alcohol in each drink! I’d be on my ass in no time 🙂 The flavor combo sounds great, though.
