Glow Stick Martini

The Martini is always a crowd pleaser, so we knew we had to have a special one at our glowing summer cocktail party. This Gin Martini is named for its soft glow that made it a perfect fit for our lantern party theme inspired by our Pear Tree invitation.


Ingredients
  • 2 ounces of Gin
  • 1 ounce of Melon Liqueur
  • 1 ounce of Sweet Sour Mix
  • Ice 
Directions

Add ice, Gin, Melon Liqueur and Sweet and Sour Mix to a cocktail shaker and shake well for about 1 minute to ensure that the mixture is ice cold. You'll see little beads of "sweat" start to form on the shaker.

Strain the cocktail into a martini glass and serve.  

Dress it up!

Like all the cocktails we served at this party, our Glow Stick Martini got its very own lantern printable embellishments from Paula at Frog Prince Paperie.

Print off these free cocktail card printables designed with the party invite in mind to complete the decor and tie in the glowing theme of this great summer party.

This idea was sponsored by Pear Tree Greetings.
