Stirrings® has a variety of flavors, like Simple Bloody Mary, Simple Peach Bellini and even 5 Calorie Margarita Mix!  I chose my favorites from their Simple Mojito mix AND Simple Lemon Drop Martini mix, with  Cosmopolitan AND Lemon Drop Rimmers.  Since I could only make one recipe for this challenge, I decided to share a sweet and tangy Mango Spice Lemon Drop Martini.

The inspiration for this recipe came from the candy section in the store, no lie.  I spied these yummy chile coated mango lollipops and I knew they would be the perfect “olives” for my martinis.
