This toffee apple martini is the perfect September cocktail, it doesn’t have the tropical feel that you associate with summer, but it isn’t a wintery drink that is dark and heavy. It is apply, sweet and reminds me of nights when you relax with your socks on, having worn thongs all day!
I love September, it is the start of my favourite season, well it used to be! September to me will always seem autumny, which is silly as I am in the southern hemisphere and we are officially 2 weeks into Spring!!!! But September is when I think of the leaves turning red, the days being packed with sunshine but the nights cooling off. Now, here in Australia September means the start of new blooms, sunny days and cool mornings.
It also used to mean the start of a new school year, now it is the start of the end. Term 3 is ending and my boys are heading into the last term of the year. Then I have to kick myself a little as next year Mr 9 will be in Year 5 and Mr 6 will be in Year 1. Oh my goodness, pour me a cocktail!!!!! My babies are definitely not babies anymore!!!!!!!
All of which has nothing to do with this cocktail, but it is Friday!!!!! The sun is shining and you know you are looking at the clock and watching the weekend draw closer!
Ha!!! Have I distracted you away from my random ramblings???? September, warm sunny days and cool evenings. Unless you are somewhere along the equator and then it is just sunny!!! Oh Gawd!!! Time for me to change the subject 😉 I tell you what, instead of changing the subject I will just add another picture of this toffee apple martini and call it a day.
Enjoy – the alcohol may dull the memory of this crazy blog post!!! Just don’t be too scared away!!!! You have to come back tomorrow for an amazing pasta dish. This pasta is a keeper of a dish, it includes roasted veg and pasta…..I am in food heaven!!!!! But for now, toffee apple martinis are the order of the day!
Happy Fridays my beautiful foodie peeps xx
