TMNT Donatello

TMNT Donatello cocktail, orange vodka, blueberry schnapps, sloe gin, sweet & sour mix, lime juice

This is my fourth and final turtle cocktail.  That was sure fun creating those different colored cocktails.  The last cocktail for this series I need to make is the one for Casey Jones.  OH, I forgot to tell you!  We watched the first TMNT movie last night and we liked it!!  It was a good one, now I can't wait to see the new one that is coming out on Friday!

Today I reserved the spot where we are going to have our oldest sons graduation party.  Yup, graduation party.  Yup, from high school.  Yup it's a year out, but if I didn't reserve it today it would be gone!  Now the planning begins!  We are throwing it with 3 other families which is nice.  That way we get to split the cost and all party together, instead of assigning each family a weekend and having it drag on for weeks.  I am excited to get together with everyone to plan it..........and yes a bit emotional about it too, hey that's what cocktails are for right?



Tonight my cocktail is for the final turtle, Donatello.  Donatello is a shy, extremely smart and a bit reserved.  These characteristics made me think of sloe gin.........which was kind of exciting because (are you sitting down?) it was something that I DID NOT have in my bar!  Yes, you've heard it here first folks!  Very exciting times when I get to add something to it.

Given that I'd never had sloe gin before, I knew I had to taste test it and see what colors I needed to mix it with so that my cocktail would come out purple, yet still taste good.  Mission accomplished!
