I felt super clever when I came up with this combo. Then, because curiosity got the better of me, I went ahead and googled “blood orange rosemary cocktail” and realized I was really not so innovative. That’s the good and bad of the internet…seems like anything you think of, someone else has already done it, asked about it, or written about it.  We debuted this seasonally-appropriate cocktail with friends last weekend, after seeing that blood oranges were on sale at the grocery. It was a hit!


Blood Orange Rosemary-Infused Martini
Serves 2
1 large blood orange, juiced
1/2 lemon, juiced
4 fl. oz vodka
2 springs of rosemary


Sugar for rim (if you wear fancy pants)
Small sprig of rosemary

Throw all the ingredients in shaker and…..shake it up. Sugar the rim, strain and pour into a martini glass and add a rosemary sprig for garnish.
