  • 2 oz Absolut Mandarin Vodka 53g
  • 2 1/2 oz Fresh Squeezed Orange Juice mandarin or clementine75g
  • 1/4 oz Simple Syrup or to taste 11g
  • 1 Orange to make garnish


  • In a cocktail shaker, add the vodka, orange juice and simple syrup. Add a few handfuls of ice and shake 4-5 times. Pour into martini glass.
  • To make the orange twist garnish, use a channel knife to cut a strip of orange out starting at the top of the orange and spiraling around, holding it over the drink so that the orange oil falls into the glass. Wrap the strip around a chopstick and hold for a moment. Drape over side of glass.


*To make simple syrup, in a small saucepan, add one part water to one part sugar. Bring to a boil and simmer until the sugar is dissolved. Pour into a lidded container and store in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.
