I just read a report by Technorati that said that blog titles that had the word news in them got the most hits. So in the interest of upping my stats I'll be adding the word news to all my titles for a while. Consider it a study.
I was going to post my fish breading recipe or my smoky spice rub recipe but after making a Cosmopolitan (my favorite cocktail, BTW) with blood orange I just have to pass this along. It was to die for. I'm sure that I am not the only one who has made this before but since it was a first for me I'm going to claim it. If someone doesn't like it, tough!
Blood Orange Cosmopolitan
2 parts vodka
2 parts cranberry juice (I used the one with less sugar & calories. Watching our weight here!)
1 part Triple Sec
the juice from one small blood orange (I'd say a least a couple of tablespoons)
Fill 2 - 6ounce martini glasses with ice (you could always keep them in the freezer but I just don't have room.) While these cool down fill a shaker with ice. Take vodka out of the freezer. (What? I can't be the only one who keep it there). Put all ingredients in shaker. Give it a good shake. Empty the ice in the martini glasses into the dog's water bowl. (Waste not, you know) Pour equal amounts into glasses. Take small to medium size sip out of husband's glass. Then take one out of yours so he doesn't think you are bogarting all the good stuff. Enjoy!
