Ice Maker Extraordinaire!

A new kitchen gadget has arrived in my house and I wanted to share, because I love it.

Why a kitchen gadget? The chances are pretty good that you do a few more things around your home besides decorate it. My guess is that you spend a decent amount of time in the kitchen. Because, don’t we all?

And, if you’re like me, especially in the Summer, you have issues with ICE. If you don’t own a fridge with an ice maker, you’re probably tired of running out for ice or filling those itty bitty ice cube trays.

I know I was. But, no more!

So here’s my favorite new addition, and as kitchen gadgets go, this one is fast becoming an all-time favorite: my Gladstone ice maker. This little counter-top powerhouse can make 50 pounds of ice in a day, it’s super quiet and it produces the first cubes within 6 minutes.

As a result, I’m never without ice now, even if I need it at a moment’s notice.

That makes me a happy person, because it’s made my Summer life more efficient. And who wouldn’t appreciate that?

So, I have a few gifts for you!

I’ve been honing my favorite martini for a long time and I think I finally have it down so I’m sharing my secret receipe with you. But I gotta warn you, you’re going to love it. And for those of you who may be interested in a non-adult beverage, I’ve included the virgin version of the drink below as well. Enjoy!

Blueberry Lemondrop Martini

Simply the best martini I've ever had, with a just a tiny zing to it. Cool as a cucumber and even more tasty, the perfect Summer treat.

Instructions
