Okay, mom… you’ve just been given ten blissful minutes alone to recharge. No kids. No job. No significant other. No to-do list.

What is your secret “mommy time out”?  If you answer was a liquid, then we might just be kindred spirits.

I know a lot of mom blogs out there offer up recipes and tips on baking and other yummy for your tummy goodness.  HERE… I do none of that.  (Okay, that is kind of a lie. Any recipes I offer up on this blog you might as well know that I swipe from friends and family so they are technically STOLEN which is bad.  Maybe I should go to confession? I guess I am not a very good mommy blogger.)

What I will give you, however, is chic happiness in a glass!   Mommy medicine!   Liquid domestic bliss! Martinis for the masses!

Do I really need to say anymore? Didn’t think so….


A shot and a 1/2 of Vodka
1/4 shot of cranberry and pineapple juice
Top with a splash of champagne

Black-Martini -  Diana IonescuBLACK MARTINI (One of my favs!)

1 and 1/2 ounces vodka
1 shot of espresso
1/2 ounce Kahlua
Splash of half-and-half
Shake, pour into glass and top with whipped cream and chocolate shavings

We can all die happy now.
