The Intoxicated Zodiac Blog is hosting this edition of Mixology Monday and in celebration of the astrological sign of Leo, the theme is Orange.
As Paalo is a Leo I have a handy guinea pig to try out this orange concoction. He is very partial to Cointreau so its use would be mandatory and rather than using regular orange juice I decided to take advantage of the fresh blood orange juice I have at the moment. To give the drink a little more kick, one more ingredient was needed, Lemon Vodka.
Blood Orange Martini
30mls Lemon Vodka
fresh blood orange juice
Place ice in a shaker and add the lemon vodka and cointreau - shake well and strain into a martini glass.
Top with a little blood orange juice to taste.
The verdict from the Leo - Two Paws Up!
