The Golden Globes start in just over an hour and what better way to enjoy the show, than with a Tangerine Martini in hand. Jimmy Fallon is the host this year, so there should be a lot of laughter and great views of the fabulous gowns parading on stage. I just love a good awards show, especially from the comfort of my couch, so quick….whip up a batch of these cocktails and enjoy the show!
1 teaspoon agave nectar
1 ounce Cointreau
5 ounces vodka
(Makes 2 Cocktails)
1. In a martini shaker, add one peeled tangerine and agave nectar. Pour in the Cointreau and vodka.
2. With a wooden dowel or spoon handle, muddle the tangerine with the alcohol, about 1 minute. Add crushed ice to the top of the shaker and shake for 1 minute.
3. Strain the mixture into two martini glasses. Slice the other peeled tangerine, crosswise. Place a slice in each glass.
4. Serve and sip. Get ready for the show….enjoy!
