Sometimes the best travel adventure is just outside your window. So today, instead of far-away lands, my very own side yard serves as inspiration and exploration.
It is with annual punctuality that our tangerine tree bursts in bright orange with a bumper crop of juicy fruit. We have learned over the years that eating them is not nearly as enjoyable as slurping their juice in the form of a Tangerini. (See my juicing excercise above).
Of course you could always cheat and by the tangerine juice at TJ’s but I find juicing my own tangerines quite rewarding.
2 martini glasses (frozen)
2 oz good vodka
4oz tangerine juice
A splash of triple sec (Cointreau is my fave)
1 can of tonic water ( use about 1/2)
Mix the liquids in a cocktail shaker and shake with ice. Then strain out into the martini glasses.
Enjoy this concoction while watching the Grammy’s and the Oscar’s. It has become a tradition in our house. Cheers!
