In keeping with this week’s trend theme of blood oranges, we found this delightful cocktail at a blog called Martha Moments. Enjoy!
This cocktail requires the freshly grated ginger to be put directly into the glass and the cocktail poured overtop. For a more subtle ginger flavor, put grated ginger into the shaker.
3/4 tsp freshly grated ginger
1 1/2 oz vodka
1/2 oz Cointreau or Grand Marnier
1 oz freshly squeezed blood-orange juice
Garnish: Candied blood orange wheel
Place freshly grated ginger into Martini glass. In a cocktail shaker filled with ice, combine vodka, Cointreau and blood orange juice. Shake and strain into glass. Garnish with candied blood orange wheel, if desired.
