Orange Martini Cocktail Recipe

The orange martini, also known as an orange juice martini, is a refreshingly tart and fruity version of the cocktail made famous by James Bond. Simple and quick to make, it is a well-balanced blend of vodka, dry vermouth, orange liqueur, fresh and thick orange juice, and orange bitters, all garnished with an orange twist. A fabulous way to take advantage of fresh fragrant oranges, consider serving orange martinis at a summer poolside party, or at any cocktail parties or social get-togethers during the summer season.
