April showers bring May flowers... we all know the childhood refrain, but come every April I can't help but hate the rain. Actually it doesn't matter what time of year it is, I absolutely loathe the rain. In April, when the warmth of summer is so near you can almost smell it, I hate the wet weather even more. When geeksugar told me about a cocktail called the Deny Away April Rain, I knew I had to have one. A drink that makes me forget all about the crappy weather, now we're talking! The recipe is a twist on the classic dirty martini, substituting fresh lime juice for the olive juice and a lime peel for the olives. Sounds refreshing doesn't it? Give it a shake'n'strain,
Deny Away April
