A Presidential Drink – The Obamatini
This post was one of our first recipe posts back in 2009. It’s fun to see how our photography and garden has changed over the years!
Pineapple Martini Cocktail
Today is truly an American Day. We’ve been on a bit of a cocktail kick lately, with two back to back cocktail posts. But adding this third cocktail drink to the queue is quite appropriate for today, to celebrate this momentous day, for President Barack Obama. Our pineapple martini cocktail recipe is simple and super refreshing.
To this new administration and the incredible man, President Barack Obama, who has given hope to millions, and of whom we look to for the future leadership of this marvelous nation, we’ve created a cocktail toast to you. Cheers, Mr. President. Salute, Gan Bei, Kanpai, Che Loong, Salud, Prost, and in every language to man, “Cheers!” May you lead us forward with strength and unity.
Hope you all enjoy our pineapple martini cocktail recipe!
