9/2/09 Guest Drink Special...the "SURE!"- tini

My friend Mary was over this week was kind enough to bring over some yummy tropical sherberts which were just begging to be paired with a bottle of Absolute Mango that was donated to the liquor cabinet. Since she is the resident mixologist she did he honors of coming up with an amazing drink and shared the details with us all here:

We decided to drink our dessert this evening to unwind after a long, hard, hump-day and naturally, celebrate our daily achievements. Not wanting your usual run-of-the-mill beer or martinis, we took a different route and made things a little fruitier and more dessert-like. We decided to call it the "SURE!-tini".

2 parts Absolut Mango Vodka
1 1/2 parts Pomegranite/Acai Iced White Tea (We recommend Turkey Hill)
1 Splash of Lemonade (We recommend Simply)
Garnish with 1 small scoop of Mango Sherbet (if in Jersey City, this absolutely must be procured at Torico's)

Drop sherbet scoop into martini glass
Chill vodka in shaker and strain into martini glass
Add Tea and follow with one splash of lemonade

Round two....with a bit a fresh peach!
