While we’re on the topic of citrus, we might as well keep going! Because if there is one thing that we have learned so far, it’s that citrus + vodka = love. Tangerines might be slightly less known than oranges, but many people consider this fruit sweeter, making it the perfect ingredient to mix with vodka.
Today, we will be teaching you how to make a martini with tangerine. But before, let’s take a look at the ingredients that you will need:
3 ounces of freshly squeezed tangerine juice
1 1/2 ounce of vodka
1 teaspoon of orange-flavoured liqueur
What makes this recipe awesome is that it’s very simple to make and incredibly flavourful at the same time. But just like the traditional martini, remember that it’s supposed to be shaken, not stirred. As a result, make sure in advance that you own a martini shaker. (If you don’t, you can always buy one online for $20 or so.)
To make a martini with tangerine, simply pour the vodka, the tangerine juice and the orange-flavoured liqueur in a cocktail shaker filled with ice cubes, either whole or crushed. Shake everything until the ingredients have started to mix together, or until the exterior of the shaker has started to frost over. Strain into a martini glass that has been previously chilled and garnish with a few tangerine slices. Enjoy.
As usual, don’t forget to share the awesomeness and to drink responsibly! More martini recipes can be found on our blog as well.
