Christmas Campfire Martini

My apologies for the tardiness with today’s post. Although I took the day off from work, I didn’t get much rest. Apparently someone thought it would be cool idea to go around and turn off the main circuit breaker of a few of houses down our street, ours of course, being one of the lucky “few”.

I thought it was strange when I woke up at about 3:00 AM half-freezing (It was probably only in the low 40s outside and about mid to low 60s inside our house. —By California standards this is totally considered freezing.) I went downstairs, took a glance up and down the street out of our living room window, and realized a few of our neighbors were without power and a few weren’t.

Perplexed I went back upstairs and raised a red flag with the hubs; he then bundled himself up and went outside to inspect the perimeter of the house. It turns out the perps left the cover to the main switch box plopped open and the main circuit switch in the off position! After quickly switching the power back on, the hubs came back inside and went straight to bed. I on the other hand… was too freaked out and too cold to go to sleep, so I decided to sit in the family room, I lit a small fire in the fireplace and sat down to watch Finding Nemo off our DVR.

It wasn’t till about 5:30 am when my body decided I had watched enough Finding Nemo that I better make my way upstairs and and back to bed… so I did.

Fast-forward a few hours, the hubs and I got up, made coffee, and headed out bright and early to do some last minute Christmas shopping. This involved lots of traffic, lots of dealing with incompetent drivers, and of course lots of lines… for everything! Bah, humbug!

Once we got home, I made a nice dinner, prepped tomorrow’s dessert, and also managed to make a couple of these for us to enjoy by the fire…

This is such a fantastic-looking drink! I was just sayin last night that I needed to top my homemade kahula with a toasted marshmallow. If you rimmed the glass in graham cracker crumbs it would be a s’more!!

o.O – my eyes are rolling into the back of my head as I type. This looks delightful. I might just need to turn the Yule Log on TV and pretend I’m sitting in front of the fire with this delight! ~Megan

This looks stunning, but more importantly, it looks like it tastes awesome too! Might not make it for the holidays but maybe during the cold month of January.

I made a similar cocktail not too long ago with a toasted marshmallow on top. That alone was the hit of the cocktail; everyone just loved that presentation and they tasted fabulous too!
