Hi Everyone!

I have been lurking here for a while and I am happy I have found such a friendly helpful group!

A little about me - I am a SAHM of 2 boys (7 and 4) and am married to a wonderful man who is my best friend, and have a 7 month old puppy who keeps me on my toes if the men-folk are out of the house. I live just north of Philly and can honestly say gardening and cooking are my favorite things after my family.

I also enjoy football, playing pool, golf, travel, martinis, parties, beaches.... did I mention I love to socialize

Anyway, I am glad to have found you all and that I finally got around to joining.

Alexa

Hi Alexa. They're called Avacado Pearls. If only I could figure out how to find a scoop that small Anyone?


California Avotini
Cup lemon-flavored vodka
3 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
1 Tbsp simple syrup
California Avocado Pearls


In a cocktail shaker, combine ice, 1/4 cup lemon-flavored vodka, 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice, and 1 tablespoon simple syrup. Shake vigorously; strain into a martini glass.

Garnish with avocado pearls* inside the glass.
* To make avocado pearls, use a small melon scoop.
