Friday Cocktail Hour: Blood Orange Martini

Like last week, I used thesse very lady like Cambridge glasses for this martini.

This is a simple cocktail that is dangerously refreshing. Use freshly squeezed blood oranges mixed with fresh lime and lemon juice for a tart cocktail that’s not too sweet. A clean tasting vodka and a splash of Cointreau are all you need to get the weekend started.


The tartness of blood oranges is so intense. Not much else is needed.
