My advance check just came in the mail today! It’s actually the second half of my advance for Seared to Perfection, and it means that the publisher has officially accepted my manuscript. And what’s more, I recently found out the book is going to have photos! I celebrated with fruity martinis.
1 heaping cup ice cubes
¼ cup freshly squeezed lemon or lime juice
¼ cup vodka
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon crème de cassis
Combine all of the ingredients in a cocktail shaker and shake vigorously. Pour into chilled martini glasses and serve immediately.
Makes 2 servings. If you like, rim the glasses with sugar by dipping into crème de cassis and then immediately into sugar.
