Edna Valley Orange Martini

Oh, I love this time of year, when the oranges are so ripe and juicy that when you try to eat one, it just soaks your hands with juice!  There's nothing like the oranges that are grown out in Edna Valley.  They might not be very large or very easy to peel, but oh my, are they the most flavorful-juiciest oranges I have ever tasted!  Which is why they make the perfect juice for this drink.  The tartness of this Martini is what gives it that extra something and the champagne tops it off wonderfully.  Of course, you can use any oranges in this drink...I just happen to have a huge supply of these oranges.  But, if you can, try to find oranges with lot's of juice and a little bit of tartness to them.


  • 2 parts Vodka
  • 3 parts freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 1 part triple sec
  •  Prosecco Champagne {or any other kind you like}
Add vodka, orange juice, and triple sec to cocktail shaker.  Add ice cubes and shake vigorously.  Strain into chilled martini glass then top off with some champagne.
