and we had a Sushi and Slippers Party!
The ladies enjoyed these Japanese Slipper Martinis
Japanese Slipper Martinis - our version
(makes a small pitcher or about 4 martinis)
- 1 cup Midori melon liqueur
- 1 cup Triple Sec orange liqueur
- 1 cup Vodka
- 1 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice
- 1 cup Sprite or Lemon Lime Soda
- honeydew melon scooped into balls for garnish
And did I mention the delicious sushi...
We enjoyed California rolls, volcano rolls, spicy tuna, shrimp tempura, and more! They use a Zojirushi Japanese rice cooker to make the special sticky rice. Wegmans and some grocery stores now carry a lot of the ingredients need to create your own sushi night at home. And many cities now have Asian Markets.
We ended the night with these sweets and played a friendly game of poker!
Domo means "thanks" in Japanese and I made this plate as a thank you gift for our gracious hosts!
What a wonderful party idea and a great night with amazing friends!
