JUICE

 

From The Barefoot Contessa

Ingredients:

1/2 cup freshly squeezed orange juice (2 oranges)

1/2 cup freshly squeezed pink grapefruit juice (1 grapefruit)

1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice (1 lemon)

1/4 cup freshly squeezed lime juice (2 limes)

1 cup good vodka (recommended: Grey Goose or Finlandia), optional

Extra lemon juice

Granulated sugar

Fresh mint sprigs

Method:

Combine the orange juice, grapefruit juice, lemon juice, lime juice, and vodka, if using, in a pitcher. Dip the rim of 6 martini glasses first in a dish with lemon juice and then a dish with sugar. Set aside to dry.

When ready to serve, place ice cubes in a cocktail shaker, add the cocktail mixture to fill the shaker 3/4 full, and shake for about 30 seconds. It’s important to shake for a full 30 seconds to get the drink very cold and dilute it slightly with the ice. Pour into the sugared martini glasses and garnish with a sprig of mint. Continue filling the shaker with ice and cocktail mixture until all the drinks are poured. Serve ice cold.
