Plum Cocktails & September's LOL Food Blogger Posts

After Oktoberfest, I was over drinking Radler. So, to celebrate the last of the season’s plums I made cocktails!


Plum Martini

1 Shot Vanilla Stoli (preferable from the freezer)
2 tablespoons of plum syrup*
Ice

Shake all ingredients together with ice.
Pour into a martini glass.
Garnish with sliced plum


Plum Margarita

1 Shot tequila
1 splash triple sec or orange liquor
2 tablespoons plum syrup*
Ice

Blend all ingredients together in a blender.

 Pour in a margarita glass.

Garnish with sliced plum or mint.

Enjoy!

*Plum Syrup

4 cups of sliced Plums
1 cup sugar

Puree plums in a blender.
Push puree through a sieve to extract the juice.
Discard plum pulp or save for another recipe.
In a small saucepan bring sugar and plum juice to a boil.
Turn seat down and simmer until the mixture has the consistency of syrup-
Let cool and pour into a clean jar, seal and  refrigerate.

Here are the posts that made me laugh out loud this month…
