The Orange Icicle Martini
Happy Saturday Divas! I have to apologize to you ladies immediately, as it is already Saturday, and I have not posted a martini recipe for you this week. As I was sitting in my living room on Thursday night preparing to post my fabulous Orange Icicle Martini recipe, the most ridiculous thing ever happened…..my computer crashed!
You heard me right! The screen went blue, and some weird writing popped up! I called my sister, who has a degree in Computer Science, and she told me that was the blue screen of death. The Blue Screen of Death! Really though! I was devastated! I immediately began thinking of those items on my computer that I hadn’t backed up elsewhere, and how I would have to “restart” my entire computer…
You know what? That fiasco is perfect material for a separate blog post. For now, I want to share my recipe for the Orange Icicle Martini. It tastes soooo good, and it is perfect for the springtime after work happy hours. Try it out, and let me know what you think.
And now I present to you the much anticipated (at least in my head) Orange Icicle Martini!
- 2oz of Your Favorite Vodka
- 2oz of Amaretto Liqueur
- 1oz of Orange Juice
- Orange Slices for Garnish
- In a shaker, combine vodka, amaretto, orange juice, and ice. Shake!
- Strain mixture into a chilled martini glass.
- Garnish with an orange slice.
Now, I can predict that the bartender at the happy hour won’t know what you’re talking about if you ask for an Orange Icicle Martini. But this recipe is simple enough…just tell him (or her) what you want! Try it out! And Drink Responsibly!
