The Best Mommy Martini – Yesterday Once More

So last week, Elisa and I had a fantastic Mommies’ Night Out.  We had the pleasure of trying Chef Vittorio Colacitti’s  (Top Chef Canada Finalist – Food Network) restaurant The Good Son.  I honestly died and went to heaven.  The food is unbelievable and the drinks are just as superb. The room is amazing. Read more about our MNO outing this week.

I delighted in a martini called Yesterday Once More and in all honesty – I keep wishing it was yesterday over and over again. This is the ultimate, delicious and refreshing martini. It is one of the best mixed drinks I have ever had (and yes I have sampled a lot in my day). I highly recommend a night out at the Good Son and you must try this drink.  But, if you can’t make it to Toronto – here’s the recipe for you adventurous mixologists at home.

What you need:

– 1.5 oz. Tromba Blanco (now that’s a smooth tequila)
– 0.5 oz. Aperol
– 0.5 oz Lemon Juice
– 0.25 oz Simple Syrup
– 0.75 oz Watermelon Juice
– 5 Basil Leaves

What you do:

Combine all ingredients in a shaker tin. Shake with ice and double strain into a chilled cocktail glass.

Drink.

Repeat.

The result:

Very happy and relaxed mommy.  Here’s to yesterday.

Urban Mommy Elisa adds: Cheers to that!
