Drink-Yourself-Pretty Martini


It is possible to drink yourself pretty! Or at least it is according to the fabulous Cocktail Deeva. Put her martini recipe to the test and see if it sets your skin aglow.


2 oz. vodka (to make you happy)
3 oz. grapefruit juice (to delay and reduce wrinkles)
blueberries (to keep zits at bay)
cantaloupe (to give your face a healthy glow)
fennel (to tone your skin)

  1. Place a handful of blueberries and a few chunks of cantaloupe into a shaker. Muddle and mash well.
  2. Add ice to shaker, followed by vodka and juice. Shake.
  3. Strain over ice in a glass of your choice and garnish with fennel. Cheers!
