V is for Variety and G is for Grapefruit Jalapeno Martini
Welcome to the Vegan Month of Food (VeganMoFo) I intend to post 20 times during the month of September – all about vegan food. Check out the gals who organize the project here, and search out other fantastic vegan bloggers. I decided on the theme of “V is for Variety” because, honestly, once I quit the chicken breast – my food choices exploded! Join me!
Wow your friends or just drink alone. Either way, you won’t be sorry. I have been drinking these all week….sometimes with a touch of vodka and sometimes with extra soda water. Tart and spicy and totally refreshing!
Here’s what you need:
2 C grapefruit juice
½ fresh jalapeno, seeds and veins intact
(vodka for you grown-ups out there)
Here’s what you do:
Simmer the juice and pepper for about 15-20 minutes or until it’s beginning to thicken and get syrupy just a bit. Strain out the pepper and any stray seeds. Chill. I used ¼ C of juice, one shot of vodka and then topped it off with soda water for my pretty martinis. For a super refreshing afternoon drink, make it 50/50 juice and soda.
