My boyfriend, Doug, is quite the mixologist! Who knew?! Last night he shook up some seasonal spirits and created a F-A-B-U-L-O-U-S holiday drink! I printed out a recipe of one of Oprah's favorite holiday martinis and he put his own spin on it. I loved it! Oprah's recipe calls for cherry limeade, but we couldn't find any at the store, so we created a pomegranate-limeade combo (ohhh so divine)! The diet ginger ale gives it splash of something bubbly that makes this drink very refreshing and festive. Cheers!

Yield: 1 Extra Fabulous Drink
1 Shot Vodka
1/3 C. Prepared Cherry Limeade (or Pomegranate + Limeade)
1/3 C. Diet Ginger Ale
1/2 Key Lime, freshly juiced
Fresh Cranberries (for garnish)
In a martini shaker half-filled with ice, combine the vodka, cherry limeade, and ginger ale. Shake mixture in shaker, then pour into a martini glass. Add the juice of 1/2 key lime. For garnish, thread fresh cranberries onto a short wooden skewer. Garnish with cranberry skewers in the glass (perfect for swirling around all the goodness before you take a nice sip)!
