|Fort Myers Sunset|
One of my favorite things about Fort Myers is the AMAZING sunsets. I mean we had some pretty spectacular sunsets in Hermosa Beach for the 9 years I lived there. Here on the west coast of Florida there is a magnificent one nearly every evening. I was so happy to have my sister, Nancy, from Nancitinis come visit me. You might know her from some of her Thirsty Thursday guest blogs: Cranberry Daquiri and Adult Grapefruit Slushy.
Our family does like our cocktails. Nancy and I felt like this was the perfect opportunity to create a cocktail together. We did lots of fun things but our highlight was heading to Captiva Island and having a sunset cocktail at the Mucky Duck. It is a beautiful beach full of seashells and we got to sit and watch the dolphins while the sun went down. Based on that inspiration, we decided to create a "Florida Sunset" cocktail.
I had seen an advertisement for Chambord Vodka and wanted to try it. Nancy provided some mixer suggestions and we were in business!
2 Shots Chambord Vodka
Heavy Splash Fresh Orange Juice
Heavy Splash Fresh Lemonade
Club soda to taste
These were very tasty and easy! Cheers to my sister for coming to visit. I miss her like crazy!
