Food & Drink

I'm Chris - or Christopher - or Mr. Dean - or Master Christopher - or just plain Sir. I'm a self-professed foodie. I love to cook and I take great pleasure in all things edible. My husband and I are relatively new to Portland, Oregon and are enjoying our culinary explorations of the area!

Food is NOT just fuel!

Fruity Margarita Martini

Again with the un-creative name!! So this drink was created based on the fruits I had available after a trip to New Seasons. Plus I still had half a bottle of Gran Gala and I desperately wanted to use it - I LOVE the smell & flavor of that orange liqueur. And anytime I get to muddle I get all excited. Interactive food & liquor making is the best.

Fruity Margarita Martini
1/4 white peach, chopped
1 strawberry, sliced
 Small bunch of fresh blueberries (8 - 10)
1/2 key lime, cut into pieces (or 1/4 regular lime)
1 oz. Gran Gala
1 oz. white Tequila

In your shaker combine the peach, strawberry, blueberries and lime. Muddle the crap out of them until all that's left is a gorgeous fruit slurry. Add some ice, the Gran Gala and the Tequila. Shake vigorously and pour into a martini glass. Garnish with a few whole blueberries and a thin slice of peach.
