This cocktail takes about three months to make. But it's worth it.
First you make tangelocello.
Or.... you could just buy a lovely bottle of orangecello, some good gin, and a few tangerines or tangelos, and call it a day. I vote yes for that.
We have no yard, but somehow have about 6 or 7 citrus trees. Three are planted in the ground and making do with a few square feet of clay. The rest are in pots. All of these trees are producing an amazing amount of fruit. Tangelos, Mandarin oranges, Bearss limes, and Meyer lemons. Vitamin C is covered.
Makes one cocktail
1 1/2 ounces gin
1 ounce tangelocello or orangecello
1 ounce fresh tangelo, tangerine, or orange juice

Fill a martini shaker with ice and add the gin, cello, juice, and bitters
