Many of you know me as a writer. But did you know I am an aspiring mixologist? One of my many hidden talents. In honor of my debut novel, Finding Jane, I created a delicious martini. It is called, JiJi Girl. (Recipe below.) It’s pretty, it’s pink, and it’s yummy!

JiJi Girl Martini
3 ounces Vodka*
11/2 ounces Triple Sec
11/2 ounces Freshly Squeezed Lemon Juice
1/2-1 tsp Sugar (I don’t like my drinks too sweet. So balance sweetness preference with this ingredient. I have tried this with simple syrup and agave, but prefer the taste of white sugar.)
1 tbsp Hibiscus Flower Syrup (Available on Amazon: https://amzn.to/3Pra81M)
Shake over ice…extra long. It should have ice floating at top. Rim glasses with pink sugar. Poor into a chilled martini glass.
*I make strong, strong martinis. I always tell people, never drink more than two martinis.. So, with that in mind, you can always reduce Vodka to make this a more balanced drink.
