Winter Sun Cocktail

We made it to the first Friday of 2013! I think you deserve a cocktail.

We made this as a family while we were all together for the holidays. It got pretty good reviews from everyone, including some faces that said "we ran out of fruit and can't make anymore?" There was also a funny exchange where my dad was making fun of me for my robotic and completely unrelaxed cocktail shaking skills, then decided to show me how it was done. I really wish I had gotten that on video, too funny!

Anyways, this cocktail is bright and sunny, just as its name implies.  So let's inject a bit of sunshine into these dreary winter days. (And warm our bones while we are at it... it's soooo cold here in Ottawa).

Stay tuned on Monday for some resolutions and challenges for 2013.

Winter Sun Cocktail

From Two Tarts
Serves 1

Juice of 2 satsuma oranges (about 1/4 cup)
Juice of 1/2 small lemon (1/2 oz)
1/2 ounce triple sec
1-1/2 ounce vodka
Sprig of rosemary
lemon zest

Moisten the rim of your glass with some fruit juice. Combine zest and sugar in a shallow bowl or plate. Turn the glass over onto plate and coat with sugar.  Pour juices, triple sec, and vodka into a shaker. Shake and then pour over ice. Garnish with rosemary sprig.


  1. Yum! this makes Friday even better. Cheers to 2013!

  2. This looks so refreshing and I LOVE rosemary in cocktails!

  4. Hi Katherine! It went well. I still have one day left. I was supposed to write something up, but have been crazy busy!

  5. This sounds fantastic! I'd love this for a winter brunch drink - YUM!
