Teeny's Peach Martini!

Happy Foodie Friday! Have you read Michael's new book Gone With A Handsomer Man yet?
It's really fun and has some great surprises! I thought I'd join the party with a themed post this week:

Teeny's Peach Martini
As Teeny awaits her ex-fiancĂ©e Bing at McTavish's Pub she orders a Peach Martini, the bartender brings her two because it's happy hour... The stool beside me creaked. I glanced up as a dark-haired man sat down and ordered a Guinness. He wore ragged jeans and a faded blue t-shirt with LAWYER OR LIAR-YOU MAKE THE CALL printed across the front. As he leaned his elbows on the counter, a curl fell down over familiar gray eyes.
Please God, not him.
Not Cooper O'Malley.

Peach Martini
1 oz Vodka
1 oz Peach Schnapps
1 oz Cranberry juice
Splash of orange juice
Mix all ingredients in a chilled cocktail shaker, pour into glass and garnish with peach slice.

So, who portrayed Cooper O'Malley in your mind's eye?
I enjoyed envisioning him as Matthew McConaughey-YUM:@)
Cheers!

  2. I agree with La! Course I am a sucker for Chocolate Martoonis lately. This one looks perfect for summer and sitting poolside! I may have to try one or five.

  11. I vote for a younger version of Tom Selleck, a very manly man! :) I'll take the original Tom, but Teeny is a young gal!

  25. I've met Matthew a couple of times. He's darling...on the big screen. If he's not too old by now...maybe Dennis Quaid. Fun opportunity to cast the role! Cherry Kay
