Blood Orange Martini

We were at dinner at our favorite local restaurant and the woman at the table next to us ordered a Blood Orange Martini

I was staring  (almost embarrassingly, just ask my husband) at this magnificent looking drink. Oh, the beautiful crimson color…

Had I not already ordered a glass of wine, I would have for sure had one of my own

I’ve been obsessively thinking about this cocktail for weeks.  So last night, my husband was planning to take me for a happy hour drink and as luck would have it, the bad Northeast weather prevented us from going

Good thing I’m not a quitter.  Today I picked up a few lovely in-season blood oranges and the rest is history.  Needless to say, I’m a happy girl right now
