Mother Earth

Day 67



Mother Earth
4.5 shots out of 5



Happy Earth Day!!  To celebrate I made a Mother Earth cocktail I found online!  I have to admit this cocktail sort of looks like my Pineapple Upside Down Cake Martini, but definitely tastes a lot better!  I am really enjoying this Mother Earth on Earth Day!

I gave tonight's cocktail 4.5 shots out of 5.  I'm convinced that it's the banana liqueur that makes this cocktail great.......but I'm sure it's because I'd bias and love the stuff!!  These ingredients actually all work well together.  I shook this cocktail up really well and made it kinda frothy on the top which I think adds to its yummyness.  I would definitely make this cocktail on Earth Day again....and on other days when I'm feeling Earthy....or even when I'm not feeling Earthy and just want a good cocktail.  Hope you all enjoyed your weekend!  We sure did here, the weather was amazing and gave us all the charge we needed.

Here is the recipe for Mother Earth:

  • 1 shot vodka
  • 1/2 shot banana liqueur
  • 1 1/2 shots orange juice
  • 3/4 shot pineapple juice
  • 1/4 shot grenadine
In a shaker add ice, vodka, banana liqueur, orange juice and pineapple juice.  Shake it up really well so that you get some foam on top.  Strain your cocktail into a martini glass.  Then pour your grenadine down the middle on the glass and enjoy!

Here's to Earth Day and a very yummy Mother Earth cocktail!!

Cheers!!
