Blood oranges have a deep red flesh and the rind of the orange has a pretty red blush. They are usually a bit sweeter than a regular orange, but if you took a blindfold test, you probably wouldn’t be able to tell the difference between a martini made with regular orange juice from a martini made with blood orange juice. The main appeal of a blood orange martini is the fantastic color of the drink.

Steps

  1. Fill your chilled cocktail shaker with the ice.
  2. Add the vodka, orange liqueur and blood orange juice (or blood orange bitters).
  3. Cover and shake vigorously for about 15 seconds.
  4. Strain your libation from the ice into a chilled martini glass.
  5. Place a blood orange on your cutting board and cut the orange in half and cut several more small slices that will fit on the rim of your glass. Then place 1 or 2 of the blood orange slices (or normal orange slices will work if necessary) on the rims of your martini glasses and serve.
