Time for a Labor Day Martini Recipe (Social Media Lesson Included ;-)

by Lemon Drop on August 31, 2010

Ahhh… Finally!! Labor Day is almost here.  Time to start planning for a long weekend to say goodbye to another great summer.

You’ve been working hard so prepare for a relaxing break but before you go plop down in your lawn chair, there are some things you’ll need: sunglasses, flip-flops, and a Hawaiian Martini. We can’t all go to Hawaii on our holiday but we sure can treat our taste buds to an exotic drink. Sip that fruity, fun drink and mull over the things that make your vacation day perfect.  What words would you use to describe that luscious holiday?

Remember these things when you go back to work…not only as a happy memory (though we’re sure those are nice too) but because you need these words! Language is a very important part of advertisement and business.

People like buying from places that are relaxed, friendly, and funny…kind of like a vacation setting. Now, having remembered the words you used to describe your vacation, you may be able to speak in more relaxed terms to your audience.  You might get started thinking about how to revise your website and advertisements with lingo pertaining to your audiences while you sip that Hawaiian Martini we mentioned at the beginning.  Here’s a great recipe, but make note, you’ve got to get started today, four days in advance to be able to make it in time for the weekend!

Roy’s Signature Hawaiian Martinihawaiian martini

2 ounces strained pineapple vodka (see recipe below)
1 ounce Stoli Vanil vodka
1 ounce Malibu coconut rum

Place ice in a martini shaker. Add ingredients and shake vigorously. Strain into a chilled martini glass and garnish with a pineapple wedge.

Pineapple Vodka – make ahead

½ fresh pineapple, skin removed, cored, and coarsely chopped

Place the pineapple in a covered, quart-sized glass jar or pitcher. Pour the vodka over, cover and refrigerate for 4 days, allowing the pineapple to steep with the vodka. Strain before use.

Enjoy and Drink Responsibly! 😉

Happy Labor Day Weekend!
