Summer party season starts this weekend and I was feeling a little bored with the idea of making the same old lemon drop martini. Thanks to one of my Twitter pals @Flutterflyevents in the U.K. I was recently introduced to extratasty.com . This is a fun, interactive website where you can browse cocktail creations created by others and by using a list of mixers, liquors and garnishes come up with your very own creative cocktail. Once registered your cocktail will post and then other visitors to the site can rate your drink. There is also a fantastic search where you can put in colors, mixers or just names of drinks, what a great resource for the wedding couple looking to stock their reception bar with a tasty signature drink.
I could not WAIT to try this out. As the days have gotten hotter around Chicagoland I have been in the mood for a delicious sangria. Search for Sangria and Extratasty has over 22 different recipes. The top rated one being this Berry Sangria. You can also search by type of liquor a search for Vanilla Vodka brought up 148 recipes, and I know I will be making this A+ rated Cake Batter Martini at a party very soon.
The one criticism I have of the site is that there aren’t ANY pictures. I do love pretty pictures of cocktails so I will end this post with some photos from one of my favorite spots in the blogsphere Hostess with the Mostess . Have a safe and fun Memorial Weekend, relax and when you get a moment share with us your creative cocktail recipe.

Till Next Time I Hope Your Next Special Event Is a Red Letter Day!
