blood orange kazis
Because it sounds yummy, that's why. I have parties just so I can champion a new drink---the last party was to showcase Blood Orange Kazis. I used to pick a drink to parade all summer, calling it the summer of the margarita or summer of the lemon drop (making food to match was at least half the fun). This summer I started picking drinks by the month: May was Mojitos, and June became Blood Orange Kazis:
Blood Orange Kamikazi Serves 2.
juice from 1 lime vodka, roughly 1 cup triple sec, roughly 1/2 cup blood orange juice, roughly 3/4 cup (I got my blood OJ from Trader Joe's, but other stores have it too)
I usually pour mine together right into the shaker with ice (including the squeezed out lime rind). Shake slowly if you have the carbonated version of blood OJ. (Optional muddling---but add the carbonated OJ after the muddling). The 'roughly' does not imply an aggressive mixologist; it just means I pour estimated amounts, mentally aiming for approximate ratios. There is a hidden agenda in 'roughly' mixing drinks: you must taste test all batches for quality control. (Disclaimer: I take no responsibility for decreased mental aim due to taste testing over long periods of time---no worries, you probably won't notice either).
