#FoodBloggerLove ~ Passionfruit Martinis







Welcome to #FoodBloggerLove! This event is helping raise funds and awareness for No Kid Hungry - please stop by and get to know this project and help out a little if you can!

I couldn't have received a more fitting person for my reveal day - I get to honor Wendy from A Day In The Life on the Farm. Wendy is an amazing lady. I gushed about her not long ago last month during our #BloggerCLUE Celebrate December reveal day! Wendy has a huge heart for family, and she has been going through what is most certainly a difficult time in losing her mom recently, and continues to be so strong and loving and active. She is an inspiration. To show our blogger buddy some love we were asked to pick a recipe that was red, or heart shaped. I browsed through Wendy's fantastic recipe index to get some inspiration and came up with the following as my "short" list (haha!): Passionfruit Martinis, Rhubarb Berry Coffee Cake, Fresh Strawberry Syrup, Arrabbiata Sauce, Raspberry Cranberry Sauce, Bursting Raspberry Muffins, Strawberry Almond Spongecakes, Strawberry Rhubarb Pie, Chicago Style Pizza, Classic Sugar Cookies... I could have kept going.

I settled on this beautiful, perfectly romantic and pink drink to share with your sweetheart for Valentine's Day this year. I actually did not have Cranberry Juice (ack)! so made a sub for grapefruit juice. I am definitely getting Cranberry Juice to try next, and some red sanding sugar for the rim (I only had green - not quite the same effect).

Definitely give this delicious and beautiful drink a try soon!
