Thirsty Thursday: April Rain Vodka Martini
On Thursdays, we seem to get a thirst that is only quenched by the likes of fine spirits, especially in the form of cocktails. April showers are the inspiration for the April Rain Vodka Martini, which is a simple spin on the classic version of a vodka martini. Add a splash of lime, and voilà! Be sure to use fresh lime juice, that’s the secret to making it extra light and refreshing.
