Is it time for a drink?

I wanted a martini but with blood orange juice.  I found one of Food Network.  It’s really good and potent.  But next time I may add more blood orange juice.  I was too lazy to take a photo.  But it’s red and beautiful.

Blood Orange Martini

  • 4 ounces vodka
  • 1/2 ounce triple sec or flavored orange liqueur
  • 2 ounces blood orange juice
  • 2 blood orange slices

In a martini shaker combine all ingredients except the orange slices with a generous amount of ice. Shake vigorously for a few seconds. Strain the libation from the ice into a martini glass. Garnish with the orange slices.


You like margarita and martini?  They you’ll probably like this one.  It’s very yummy.

Grapefruit Margarita Martini
From RecipeZaar

  • juice of 1/2 large grapefruit (I used Oasis pink grapefruit juice but didn’t measure, probably between 1-2 ounce)
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 1/2 teaspoon superfine sugar, plus more for rimming glass
  • 1 1/2 ounces of silver tequila
  • 1 ounce orange-flavored liqueur

Place superfine sugar, grapefruit and lime juice in cocktail shaker and swirl until sugar mostly dissolves. Pour in tequila, liqueur and at least 4-6 cubes of ice. Shake vigorously for 30 seconds. Strain in sugar rimmed martini glass and garnish with lime wedge or grapefruit section.
