Good morning, sunshine! I say we start this week off on the right track with a martini for breakfast on this fine Monday. Who’s with me?
There is a place in Charlotte called Dillworth Neighborhood Grill that used to be a go-to hang out for lunch and happy hour back in the day when I was an Assistant Public Defender. Just to be clear – lunch and happy hour usually happened at different times. 🙂 Usually.
If you remember Happy Days and the Fonz, it was our version of Arnold’s. Except we weren’t in high school and I didn’t have any friends named Potsie – even if we do share the same last name.
What in tarnation does this all have to do with this pink martini, you ask?
The Patio Passion was a signature drink at DNG that was my best friend at the end of a trial week. Because when you have to explain to a jury that the smack in your client’s pants is not his and he should be found not guilty because of the not my pants defense…..
You will need the Patio Passion Martini in your life.
I hope you never experience either side of this story, but if you do, I have your remedy. Crappy trial weeks led me to recreate the DNG Patio Passion Martini.
Cheers to a great week! If it sucks, you can always have the Patio Passion Martini!
