The Lob
It's spring in NJ, and that means tennis season.  Our tennis club is finished rolling the courts for play and this week the NJ Women's Tennis League matches began. You never know what to expect when you take the courts.  Sometimes you play a team of older ladies and think, "Surely we will beat them."  But don't let the gray hair fool you, it's not quite, "The older the wiser"...more like "The older the better at lobbing".  Some days the blue hairs really sneak up on you...and so will this cocktail.  It tastes fruity and innocent but is filled with liquor!  You need one of these after being beaten by the lob...plus it's the same color as a tennis ball.  I actually think it makes a better shot than a martini...but it all depends on how badly your match went!

The Lob

1 oz. Vodka
1 oz. Midori (Melon) Liqueur
1/2 oz. banana liqueur
2 oz. pineapple juice

Pour everything into a shaker filled with ice.  Shake vigorously and strain in to a martini glass. I think this would look cute garnished with a ball of honeydew melon (but I didn't have any handy).

Cheers! XO  Martha
