A citrus martini is one of my most favorite cocktails. I just love combining lemons, cara cara oranges, and blood oranges to create a totally gorgeous cocktail. It is so simple to make using fresh ingredients.Print
- Juice of 1 lemon
- Juice of 1 orange
- 1 slice of blood orange (slice this before you juice the orange)
- Juice of 1 blood orange
- 1 oz. orange liqueur
- 2 oz. vodka or gin
Slice the blood orange in half. Then cut a slice of the blood orange for a garnish, set aside.
Juice all the citrus. Strain the juice through a strainer into the cocktail shaker to get the seeds and any pulp out. Add the vodka or gin, and the orange liqueur. Add ice, and shake vigorously.
Strain cocktail into a cocktail glass, and garnish with blood orange slice.
