Thursday Happy Hour — The BOM

Sometimes you need to start the weekend off early.  And our CSA box (which has had some blood oranges in it) comes on Thursday, so there you go — all the inspiration that's required.

The BOM (Blood Orange Martini) goes down super-easy, which has its pluses and minuses.  I highly recommend one.  Or two. :)

2 oz vodka
2.5 oz blood orange juice
1/2 oz citronage (or triple sec)
1/2 oz simple syrup

Mix the ingredients into a cocktail shaker, add ice, and shake vigorously.  Strain into a cocktail glass.

After I made it, I realized I was supposed to try Hapalove's cocktail creation with blood orange juice from HER CSA box… d'oh!  Thank goodness there are more oranges in the refrigerator!

  1. Since the discovery of the M-number, a universal constant, I have always said, "one martini is too many, two martinis are too few, three are perfection…".Little-recognized fact: the M-number is also a natural immunization against any amount (of other forms) of alcohol.(The M-number was discovered by a dedicated researcher one morning in the 1980s in Phoenix by a process similar to mathematical induction. You know: "oooh, noooo, stop the car! M+1 is really tooo many…")
