Roasted Strawberry and Rhubarb Martini – Friday Happy Hour

Roasted Strawberry and Rhubarb Martini – Friday Happy Hour

Happy Friday everyone!  It’s martini time!  The temperatures are rising here in the PNW – there’s a threat that we may see close to 100 degree temperatures by Saturday.  I think that this calls for a whole pitcher of martinis.  Ok – maybe it’s not quite that extreme yet.  At the very least, if you are looking for a recipe that makes a fruity martini for one, look no further (or – feel free to double the recipe to share).

Roasted Strawberry and Rhubarb Martini
Serves 1 (but could easily be adapted for more)

1 ounce roasted strawberry and rhubarb mashed
2 ounces vodka
juice of 1/2 a lemon
a dash vanilla

Muddle the roasted strawberry and rhubarb in the bottom of a cocktail shaker.  Add the vodka, lemon and vanilla. Add ice and shake.  Serve in a chilled martini glass with a sugar dipped rim (I ran a bit of vanilla over the rim of my martini glass and then dipped it in sugar).
