The tangerine cream martini is a delicious blend of freshly squeezed juice, vanilla vodka, and orange liqueur. Great for brunch and happy hour, or any hour for that matter!
This may not be the most classic Mad Men-style martini you’ve ever come across, but it sure is delicious, and definitely worth a try. The key is getting hold of some freshly squeezed juice. If you can find freshly squeezed tangerine juice, the bolder flavor and more vibrant color will give your cocktail an added dimension of greatness. Freshly squeezed orange juice will be perfectly fine as a substitute.
Tangerine Cream Martini – What You’ll Need:
- 1 oz vodka
- 1 oz vanilla vodka
- 1 oz orange liqueur
- 6 oz freshly squeeze tangerine or orange juice
- 1 wedge lime
Tangerine Cream Martini – What You’ll Need To Do:
Fill your martini glass with ice water and set it aside.
Add a half a cup of ice to a cocktail shaker then add in the measured ingredients, and squeeze the lime into the shaker as well. Secure the lid and shake well for about 8-10 seconds. Dump the ice water out of the martini glass and then strain the shaker contents into the glass. Serve immediately.
No garnish is necessary, but a twist of orange or lime peel would be a nice addition.
