Lemon Drop Martini

This weeks MUST try drink is a favorite amongst many of my friends.
It’s called a Lemon Drop Martini, it’s not as tart as lemonade but when mixed correctly the lemony mix with the rimed sugar cocktail glass (optional for men) makes this drink absolutely delightful. This drink can be enjoyed year round but I particularly enjoy it in the spring and summer months or when I’m in a warmer climate where I can drink it out doors. But that’s just me…
So this week make sure to try one of these and let me know how you like it.
Here is the Vegas Lemon Drop Recipe $$$
1 1/2 oz Absolut® Citron vodka
1 tsp sugar
1/4 lemon

Slice the 1/4 lemon into two seperate wedges. Place in a cocktail shaker half-filled with ice cubes. Pour the Absolut Citron into the shaker, and add one teaspoon of sugar. Shake vigorously. Strain into a sugar-rimmed cocktail glass. Garnish with a lemon twist, and serve.

Angelique Kidjo

I was looking forward to Angelique Kidjo’s February 9th Album Release "OYO"
But it seems that she has pushed it back to add a collaboration with a yet unknown artist. So now I have to wait until April .
If your not familiar with Angelique Kidjo I’ll give you the quick run down.
Angelique Kidjo
Born in Benin (West Africa), Angelique Kidjo is a Grammy award-winning music recording artist deemed "Africa's premier diva" by Time Magazine. Kidjo's internationally acclaimed repertoire includes collaborations with various recording artists such as Carlos Santana, Peter Gabriel, Alicia Keys, Josh Groban, Branford Marsalis, Joss Stone, and many more. Known for her dynamic and uplifting music, she has translated her distinctive work in the arts to that of philanthropy; by promoting education for girls in Africa through her foundation, Batonga and as a UNICEF Goodwill ambassador Kidjo travels the world to inspire and empower.

Regardless of your nationality, once you here the voice of Angelique Kidjo she will bring you back to the mother land.

If you don't believe me visit her website and listen for your self.

Luxury of Cognac

There is nothing better than enjoying a smooth cognac with Cuban cigar. The warm sting on your lips makes the taste of the cigar linger long enough make you want to lick your lips and do it again. Aged cognac makes the experience so much more enjoyable.
Since I know that you are ALL millionaire’s in the making I want to introduce you to a cognac in the Courvoisier family L’Esprit de Courvoisier.
L’Esprit is one of the rarest cognacs in the world. This blend of Cognacs is mixed with ancient blends that date back to the Napoleonic era. The only way to have this cognac is neat. In case you were wondering this serves in NYC for $500 per glass and the bottle retails for about $5000 dollars.
So you have to promise me that as soon as you have officially arrived!
You get someone else to buy you a bottle….LMAO…..(WINK)

Feeling Like Some Funk with DJ Jeff Brown

We will be talking to DJ Jeff Brown in the future but for now Let me give you a taste

Congratulations To The Saint's

I won’t even pretend to act like I’m a huge sports fanatic. What I do know is last nights Super Bowl (Colts vs. Saints) was bigger then a game for the Saints. The city of New Orleans has suffered so much since Katrina, last nights win represents hope and proof that they will not be defeated.
Congratulations New Orleans!!!!

The first thing I have to say about him is I love the new look. Very Grown and Sexy. There is something about a man in tailored clothes that says a lot for his growth (yes I am aware that it’s the stylist
I’ve been listening to this new album “Another Round”and I must say I like it. He is consistent in the mood that he keeps you in. He is that ghetto lover that doesn’t look like the ghetto (anymore). His story telling makes every song a mini soap opera with out the R.Kelly dramatics. My favorites on this Album are “Her”, “In My Hands”, and “Aint Leavin without You Remix”. The entire Album was really good you can put this one in and not skip a song.
Good Luck to Jaheim on this one. Let me know your thoughts.

Online Dating???

OK, so it’s clear that the dating scene has changed drastically within the past decade.

So I’m not ashamed to say that I’ve tried the online dating scene. Since know one is paying me for advertising I will leave out the name of the site that I’m tried…lol But if you really want to know send me an email and I’ll let you know.

Ok, so I’m on this site and my intentions are to seriously look at these men, read their profile and shoot them an email. But I just can’t get past the photos that people post on these sites. LOL.. The funniest to me are the guys doing sexy poses in the bathroom mirror with the camera phone…

Now I am far from shallow so when I tell you I really tried to take these men seriously I really did, but it became a joke to me and I just turned the whole experience into a comedy. I have so many friends that this has worked for but it doesn’t seem to work for me.

Now guys I can only imagine what your photos must look like. Please share and let us know what you think about the ladies display.

How do you guys feel about online dating and are there any really good sites out there? Do you think it's easier for White people to date online than Black people?
