Blood Orange Martinis

March 7, 2009

Cheers to our new blog!  What better way to start it off than with these delicious Blood Orange Martinis!  

Blood Oranges 3

The name may sound pretty gross but the oranges are sweet and juicy.  After seeing them the past few weeks in the supermarket, we decided to finally buy some and of course make cocktails.  Don’t they say “When life gives you blood oranges make martinis” or something like that?  Maybe it was lemons but we’re pretty sure you’ll love the substitution.

Blood Orange Martinis

Makes 2 large martinis.  Inspired by Smitten Kitchen.  



3 Blood Oranges, freshly squeezed

7-8 oz Stoli Vodka (or your favorite Vodka)

3 oz Triple Sec



Make and Shake it:

Fill two martini glasses with cold water and a few ice cubes to chill the glasses.  Fill a shaker 2/3 full with ice cubes.  Add the freshly squeezed juice from the blood oranges, vodka and triple sec to the shaker.  Shake aggressively and pour.  Enjoy!
