Frangelico Hazelnut Martini


What a busy weekend. With the help of a few neighbors we started a monthly dinner club and this past Saturday was our first dinner at our house. 6 couples doesn’t sound like a lot until you realize my dishes are all sets of 8 not 12 and umm where’s everyone gonna sit? Well, it all worked itself out and we had a great time! Since I was hosting we where in charge of the main dish. We made my super easy turkey. I didn’t realize there’s less of a variety in sizes when it’s not Thanksgiving and ended up with a 22 pounder! All went well and I can’t wait for next month’s dinner, the theme is Mexican and I’m in charge of a soup or salad. I’m thinking it’ll be a tortilla soup yummy! So to kick off the week I’m gonna start with a cocktail.

I will say this, it was tasty, but it was also really strong so it’s a slow sipper one.

We extended the Jack Daniel’s Charcoal and Smoker Blocks giveaway to end this Thursday so if you haven’t entered yet be sure to click HERE for details.

  1. That's an excellent idea for a fun night.

  2. That's so exciting that you started a dinner club! I know I really enjoy the one we're in. It's fun to see what other people choose as the sides to the main dishes and to share the recipes with each other (while the men watch football.) And boy do I wish I could have one of these awesome looking cocktails today! (soon)
