Le Voov! Hot Lips Martini ? ?
Along with the hot days of summer, we all need an icy cool cocktail now and then to enjoy. This lovely mixture came about by sheer laziness during a recent heat wave. Early in the morning, I had made myself an energizing, freshly squeezed juice in my Breville Juicer (available at our Le Voov! Amazon Store) after hitting a local farmer’s market. Usually, I’m fairly religious about cleaning my juicer right away, because it’s a real pain the rear to scrub if the pulp dries to the inside of the ridiculously sharp grinder blades.
Any who, I realized at the end of a long, hot work day that the damn juicer was still staring at me, with all the pretty pulp now defiantly clinging to the extremely sharp grinder blades. Rats! ? Maybe even double rats!!!! ? ?!
So I decided the best point of attack was to juice another cucumber through the juicer to loosen things up a bit. Then I threw half a jalapeño into the juicer just for fun…
At this point, the mixologist in me began to shine and I created the Hot Lips Martini. And just for the record, cleaning the juicer after consuming this martini was a breeze, I think…. Cheers! ? ?
