Orange-tini

Now that summer is winding down and everyone is getting back into their normal routines, we have returned to our weekend get togethers with our good friends – trying out new cocktail ideas and recipes!  

This weekend our friends hosted and served Orange-tinis – they were excellent!   We took the idea for rimming the glass with Tang from one of the martinis served at Blue Wasabi.  Freshly squeezed oranges are most important – it helps that our friends have 44 orange trees on their property! 

I hope you give these a try and let me know what you think!  Cheers!

Orange-tini
Makes 2 (good sized!) drinks

3 shots mandarin orange vodka
1/2 shot triple sec
juice of one orange
1/2 shot dry vermouth (optional)
Tang, on a small plate for dipping the martini glass

Keep your martini glasses in the freezer until ready.  Fill a cocktail shaker with ice.  Add above three ingredients to the shaker, shake to combine.  Take the orange and line the rim of the glass with some of the juice.  Dip the martini glass into the Tang.  Pour cocktail through strainer from shaker into glass.  Enjoy!
