Blood Orange Martini and Happy Birthday Grumpy!

Happy Birthday to my Grumpy Hubby.  While he may be mellowing out more as he ages (he he) he still is his Grumpy self for the most part.  Just not as strong.  I thought to celebrate his venture into the land of no going back, I would share with you this formerly faceless recipe from  For those of you who don’t know what a faceless recipe is, it is a recipe that does not have a photo connected to it.  Well, this yummy drink now has a photo attached and I guarantee that if you like this kind of beverage, you will like this particular one!

The original recipe called for tangerines, but I had these gorgeous blood oranges that I just couldn’t resist using for this martini.  So raise your glass with me and wish Grumpy a happy one today!
