Pineapple Blossom Martini

Well, I guess you can tell I took this picture back when the sun was still shining in Seattle... enjoying the sun and the friendship of a good buddy (I didn't snatch his cocktail from his hand for this photo shoot, but hubby's are fair game)
We had obviously already started sampling the wares, you can tell by the partial fullness of the glasses.
However, I hope this picture conveys the yumminess of the cocktail???

Sorry, no umbrella, no pineapple wedge, no orchid or cherry.
Pure ungarnished deliciousness.

Today, after a busy, crazy week of woe, misfortune, and tragedy, here's a little ray of sunshine you can inflict upon yourself and a couple chosen others. 
Have a great weekend... anyway.

Makes 1

1/2 jigger (1/2 oz) St Germain liqueur
2 jiggers (2 oz) vanilla vodka
3 oz pineapple juice

Shake all ingredients with ice and strain into chilled martini glass.
Garnish with a wedge of pineapple, lime wedge, orchid, cherry, or umbrella! 
Whatcha got handy?

Here's a tropical pictorial of our week... minus the sunshine, the warmth, the flora and the fauna.  That leaves the rain. Sigh.
