Signature Cocktail: Farmer’s Marketini

by Kimberly Hickok

We are blessed with a a large circle of friends. I was reminded of how wonderful they are yesterday when we had nine of our friends over for a fried chicken dinner complete with corn spoon bread, rice, black eyed peas, Swiss chard, cucumber salad and homemade jalapeno jelly. 

Everyone offered to bring something and all I really needed was dessert. Jen obliged with a coconut cake (my favorite!) and Kelly brought a awesome peach and raspberry pie (and some really pretty pumpkins so I could ‘autumn up’ my house). Ellen brought beautiful leaf-shaped votive holders and Kathy brought me a lovely bottle of cold pressed olive oil.

Karen brought flowers and the Signature Cocktail For The Evening – the Farmer’s Marketini.

That cocktail was a hit! Everyone – girls and guys – enjoyed this pink drink served in a martini glass garnished with a slice of apple. Karen told me she was inspired when she saw the Thatcher’s™ Organic Apple Spice Liqueur display at our local liquor store. Using her iPhone she Googled cocktail recipes using the liqueur and found the Farmer’s Marketini.
