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!
- 4 ounces fresh squeezed blood orange juice
- 2 full shot glasses vanilla vodka
