Meet the Wine Lover's Martini

Place a martini glass in the freezer or fill it with ice water to chill while you prepare the cocktail. 

Chill the Glass:

Measure out the red wine, vodka, simple syrup, and orange liqueur. 

Prepare the Ingredients: 

In a mixing glass or shaker, combine the red wine, vodka, simple syrup, and orange liqueur. 

Mix the Cocktail: 

Shake the ingredients vigorously with ice in a shaker for about 15-20 seconds. Alternatively, you can stir the ingredients in a mixing glass if you prefer a gentler mix. 

Shake or Stir: 

– Discard the ice from the chilled martini glass. – Strain the mixed ingredients into the glass, ensuring that no ice or fruit pulp gets through.

Strain Into the Glass: 

Express the oil from an orange peel over the cocktail by giving it a twist. Drop the peel into the glass or use it as a garnish on the rim. 

Garnish 

The Wine Lover's Martini is a fusion of the bold notes of red wine with the smoothness of vodka, creating a well-balanced and sophisticated cocktail 

The touch of orange liqueur adds a hint of citrusy brightness, complementing the flavors of the wine. 

It's a perfect choice for those who appreciate both the complexity of wine and the elegance of a classic martini. Cheers!
