Beautiful Blood Orange juice makes a beautiful martini that is perfect for your valentine celebration! Or, in this case, a perfect birthday celebration drink!
Blood Orange Martini

Happy Birthday to my Grumpy Hubby.  While he may be mellowing out more as he ages, he still is his Grumpy self at times.  I thought to celebrate his venture into the land of no going back, I would share with you this Blood Orange Martini! Just enough tart with just enough sweet come together with some vanilla vodka! I promise it’s not too sweet, that it is just sweet enough! I am not a fan of super sweet drinks and this one turned out perfectly for me!

There is also a citrus flavored vodka that I think would go great in this drink. I encourage you to play around with the recipe and create your own version! In the meantime, try this one out and lift a glass to my Grumpy hubby wishing him the very best of Happy Birthdays!
