I'll be headed over to my sister's place tonight on Marco Island; we're going to enjoy a few cocktails and probably consume more food than two small-ish women should. It's the Italian heritage. I've always said that eating is a sporting event.
I'm going to make coconut martinis. Simple recipe: Van Gogh's Coconut Vodka--about 1 1/2 ounces per drink shaken over ice with 2-3 teaspoons of Coconut Milk. Strain into a martini glass. Garnish as desired. I've had a similar drink that was garnished with toasted coconut, but as coconut can be chewy when eating it, I don't find it a desirable addition to a drink. Perhaps garnish with a piece of fresh coconut and a sprig of mint.
Donna is making portobello burgers with roasted vegetables, and I'm making baby back ribs. She has a Key Lime Cheesecake for dessert if we're not passed out from food or drink by that time.
Have a great day, everyone! Happy 4th.
