Apple Pear Ginger Saketinis

Let’s have a cocktail, shall we?

The last time I had a dinner party at the house, I was pregnant so didn’t get to partake in the libations. Now, girls’ nights are when the hubbies watch the babies and my friends and I will enjoy a cocktail together at a lounge or restaurant.

When we do have company over to the house, I love to make some kind of homemade signature cocktail. There are 3 things I rotate between: Pomtinis, sangria, and THIS:


Apple pear ginger sake-tinis.

A friend of mine taught me the recipe, and it’s a good thing we were neighbors because it’s the kind of drink where you can’t taste the alcohol. It’s like candy, so be mindful of that since it’s easy to overdo it… so I’ve heard.

If you don’t have a juicer, you could hit up a local juice bar to get fresh pear, apple, ginger juice, or just buy your favorite juices from the store.

The juicer gives it a light, frothy appearance and texture:

it’s a perfect drink for fall, and a fabulous drink for girls’ night. Even if it’s just you, yourself and your family pet…. and if your husband crashes the party πŸ˜‰

My favorite entertaining salad (greens, dried cranberries, candied pecans, goat cheese, balsamic)

Butternut squash and goat cheese lasagna

  11. I am very disappointed in your choice of advertisers on this blog. It appears to me that you are selling out and are only concerned about making money. If you don’t support fast food (such as Wendy’s) in your daily living than why allow them to finance your paycheck?

      I have never chosen the specific ads for my blog. I have a contract for an ad company and they fill the ads. If I ever see something inappropriate or out of line, I will take it down, but this blog helps me support my family. I decline product review requests and even sponsored trips from companies I’m not passionate about, because I don’t want to be a “sellout”

      • Fitnessista says:

        we have a new advertising structure, so i just went into my settings in the new dashboard and found that i could block certain industries. i blocked restaurants and fast food

      • This is why I love this blog. You support your family and you do all of this for your family. You have morals and self respect and that shows. You are a very different blogger then a lot of the ones that I have come accross. You dont show off your life and you dont accept any free products from any company just because it is free. I have always loved that. I have a great deal of respect for you because of that You have really set a great example for your daughter.

  12. Omg that sounds amazing! What a perfect beginning of fall drink.

  13. Where did you get your stemless martini glasses? They are so chic! I always spill anything in a martini glass, but these look pretty spill-proof.

  14. What juicer doyou use? I love to have appliancese that can serve many uses so I would realy love your imput on a great juicer/blender whatever you have been using.
