A Fun Citrus Cocktail

I thought it would be fun to post a citrus cocktail in case you were wanting something a little special for a super bowl party this wonderful cocktail comes from Tomatoes on the vine, a fun Florida based food blog:


recipe from Bon Appetit 

3 clementines or 1-2 tangerines peeled
3 dashes of orange bitters
1/4 cup Hendricks's Gin (A smooth Scottish cucumber infused gin-worth seeking out) or other good quality gin
1/4 cup Campari
3 tablespoons sweet vermouth
Ice cubes
2 clementines or one tangerine, sliced for garnish

Place 3 whole peeled clementines or tangerine and orange bitters in a cocktail shaker and muddle until the clementines or tangerines are broken down.  Add gin, Campari, and vermouth.  Fill shaker 3/4 full with ice.  Shake vigorously for 30 seconds.  Strain into two martini glasses, dividing equally.  Garnish each with a clementine or tangerine slice.
