T.G.I.F.F. I'm sure you can figure out the extra "F" in that saying - "finally" right? We are all experiencing a heat wave unless you are the lucky few to live in the North West right about now. This weekend we need to just lie by the air conditioner or the pool and do nothing! It is hot, and for the second time this year, our air conditioner went out. We didn't realize until we were getting ready for bed that the temperature was quickly rising in the house. We called an emergency repair man because, first of all we live in Phoenix, and second, we are dealing with excessive heat wave. So, needless to say, we need a drink this Friday to celebrate the end of this week.
The French Martini is one of my favorite cocktails. It is so refreshing and tasty. You can garnish this drink with a maraschino cherry or a lime. The world is your oyster. So cheers to the end of this week, and let's have a drink!
