Blood Orange Cranberry Martini
"The Bloody Rose is what we are calling this Vodka Blood Orange Cranberry Martini which is a delicious fall cocktail drink made with vodka, blood orange liqueur, lime juice, rosewater, and a cranberry “jam” called Cranberries Cooked in Pays d’Oc Wine. You can use any gourmet cranberry preserve or compote. Read on to learn more about blood orange and two other flavors I “pooh-poohed” and then had to take back my words once I tasted the recipe."
