It's Friday and time for a very special cocktail!
Today was my last day on the job and, if you've been following my saga, you'll know that there have been some ups and downs along the way.
I've accepted that there are just too many things I can't fix about the company, and that it's time to move on. I'll miss a very special set of co-workers and friends at my old job, but I'm thrilled to be setting out on a funky new adventure (to borrow one of Hubby's favorite phrases) working with another group of former co-workers.
My I Quit! cocktail is a lovely shade of red that represents the color of a certain logo of a certain company that I'm leaving. ;) This drink is a refreshing mixture of vodka, vermouth, and sparkling blood orange soda, with a citrusy and herbacious flavor. It's a perfect summer drink, and you don't even have to give a two-week notice to enjoy it.
I Quit! Cocktail
2 oz mandarin or clementine vodka
1 oz sweet vermouth
Approx. 2 oz sparkling blood orange soda (I used Sonoma Sparkler)
Place vermouth and vodka in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake well and strain into a martini glass. Top with sparkling soda. (Amount of soda may vary depending on the size of your martini glass.)
