Ravens Martini

so now that i have opened the bottle of black current liqueur, i have to come up with some other ideas besides the shady islander.
since tonight is the ravens first game and we are out of beer, i decided on a ravens martini. it's very suiting that the drink happens to be dark purple too. it must be fate.
so, here we sit, sipping our martinis and watching the jets out play our beloved ravens. a last minute touch down before the end of the first half is giving us renewed hope. here's hoping the game continues this turn around in the second half!

Ravens Martini
(makes 2 drinks)

fill shaker with ice. combine 3 ounces of your favorite vodka with 2 ounces of black current liqueur and shake well. fill 2 glasses with ice and divide contents of shaker into both glasses.


we also had our version of the classic football chili. we had garlic naan and an indian chili of sorts - baingan bharta. E actually requested this again even though he isn't even a big eggplant fan. so give this dish a chance, if nothing else, it's a great vehicle for garlic naan. i'm pretty sure that's why E likes it so much.

  1. This is so much fun! So thankful the Ravens ended up winning in the end, although it certainly wasn't pretty...
