The Weekend Cocktail: A Toast to California Dreamin'

Print This Post Print This Post


As I was working on recipes this week using blood oranges,  I couldn’t help creating a cocktail as well. This is a perfect Southern California winter beverage! It has a beautiful sensuous color and the perfect kick! Cheers!


4 ounces vodka

2 ounces contreau

4 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 into two martini glasses rimmed with sugar. Garnish with the orange slices.
