30 Days of Cocktails and Mocktails Day 21: Winter Solstice

To honor the first official day of winter!


  • 1 1/2 ounces orange vodka

  • 1/2 ounce orange-flavored liqueur, such as Cointreau

  • 1/2 ounce freshly squeezed lemon juice, preferably from Meyer lemons

  • Ice cubes

  • Club soda, chilled

  • 1 mint leaf, for garnish

  • 1 raspberry, for garnish


  1. In a cocktail shaker, combine vodka, orange liqueur, lemon juice, and ice; shake until well combined.

  2. Strain into a chilled martini glass; add a splash of soda.

  3. Carefully fold mint leaf in half lengthwise and place the stem end into the opening of the raspberry.

  4. Float on top of cocktail and serve immediately.

This recipe is from Martha Stewart - can you tell by the garnish?
