Looking down into two Orange Drop Martinis.

My son’s girlfriend Kristin came out to visit last week and we had an hour to kill…so we went to Total Wine! We wandered around and loaded the cart with all kinds of crazy liqueurs and wine’s with ridiculous names/ labels. I had heard of Orangecello , but it never made it’s way into my liquor cabinet….until now. Most of my cabinet got left behind in Iowa when I moved, so I needed to replenish.

My first thought was Orangecello Cake, wouldn’t that be yummy? But I wasn’t in the mood to bake a cake yesterday. I did however have all of the ingredients to create an Orange Drop Martini…or two….for the photos of course.

I just reworked my Lemon Drop Martinis recipe and it worked out beautifully!!
