Friday Cocktail | Tangelocello Martini (or Orangecello)

tangelocello martini

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.
