Blood Orange Martini

Drinks should be prepared for rain

Like a cosmo, but better and you won’t have to think of a particular actress who happens to resemble a horse from the neck up.

Blood Orange Martini

Place all liquors in a shaker filled with ice. Shake. Pour into a martini glass. Cut orange slice in half. Squeeze half into the glass and give a little stir. Garnish with the other half.
