I figured if winter isn't going to go away, then I might as well drink my way through it.
One good thing about this season is there are clementines GALORE to eat, so I figured making a cheery cocktail with this sweet fruit would help shake the winter blues.
Thus, I give you the Clementini!
What you'll need to make it happen:
- 2 ounces vodka
- 1 ounce triple sec
- 3 ounces fresh squeezed clemetine juice
- granulated sugar
- sliced clementines for garnish
*sparkling wine or sprite optional
How to make it happen:
Step 1: Combine juice, vodka, and triple sec into a martini shake or glass with ice. Shake until chilled.
Step 2: Run a cut clementine around the rim of your martini glass and run through granulated sugar
Step 3: Pour your drink into a glass, garnish with a slice of clementine, and enjoy!
*Optional Step 4: Top off with some Sprite or Sparkling Wine for a fizzy pop!
The sugar rim balances the tart drink- and it has just the perfect amount of bite!
So there you have it! A little sip to brighten up even the bleakest winter day!
