Orange for the Interior

We all need a little extra Vitamin C during this cold snap! I would like to share a special recipe for one of my yummy martinis.
I have also provided a child friendly version!
Plan ahead, the vanilla sugar takes a month to make! (or borrow some of mine)
In a martini shaker with ice mix:
2 oz. Vanilla Vodka
1 oz. Orange Liqueur
2 oz. Orange Juice

Let this chill while you prepare the glass.
Dampen the rim of the glass with a bit of lemon. Dip the rim in the vanilla sugar* to coat.

Add 1 oz. of Sprite or & Up to the shaker, gently shake and pour!

*Vanilla Sugar
Fill 3/4 of a Mason Jar with sugar. Add a vanilla bean that has been split open lengthwise being careful not loose any of the vanilla granules. Place the bean in the jar and seal it tight. Shake the jar every few days until it is ready.

For those under 21 try this variation:
2 oz. Orange Juice
4 oz. of Seltzer

You can add a little Sprite or 7 Up to sweeten it a bit if you like!
