Back in Omaha

I'm finally back in Omaha and back to work. I was in Chicago and then went to Phoenix to cater a couple events for my sister and brother-in-law. I love doing this traveling chef thing....I wish I could do this full-time. I am gathering all my photos and trip recipes so that I can start posting about all the wonderful food I made during my travels. Look for postings to start on Sunday.

I hope you're all having a wonderful summer! To help make your summer even more fun...try my favorite summer cocktail. I love Minute Maid's Pomegranate Lemonade and though I drink it a lot without any alcohol in it....last summer I decided to try to make a martini out of it and let me tell's amazing!!!! You've got to try this out!

Avesta's Summer Martini
2 oz vodka
1 oz pomegranate liquor
2-3 oz Minute Maid Pomegranate Lemonade (2oz if you like it strong, 3 or 4 oz if you want it to go down really easy)
lemon to garnish

Pour all the ingredients into a shaker with ice. Shake well and pour into a chilled martini glass. Enjoy!!! This is also good made in big batches in a pitcher. I slice lemons in it and then serve it in glasses with ice. It's so easy and your guests will love it!

This Minute Maid Lemonade is so addictive!!!!!

And doesn't it look so good?
