Candy Bar Martinis: Snickers Martini and Almond Joy Martini

Have you ever had one of those days…. you have already put in more than 9 hours today and you just can’t seem to make a dent in that towering stack of work on your desk you matter how hard you try? and the promise of a good martini is the only thing that is keeping you from going off the deep end?

That stack of papers is so menacing at this point you have actually started memorizing the way it looks from top to bottom?  Scratch that, you HAVE memorized it.

Truth be told if someone were to come in and remove something from the pile, you would know.  Immediately.

Yeah, you know what I’m talking about- the office that looks like “controlled chaos”  You might as well cash it in, ’cause you are no bueno at this point my friend…

A hot bath, and a sweet sip of one of these candy bar martinis after a long day is just what the Dr. ordered.

 

Note: I’ve partnered  with the awesome folks at www.Drizly.com who were gracious to supply me with the items needed to inspire my candy bar martini recipes!

 

Cheers!
