Have Gin Will Shake*
 4:35 am

So making brunch today for some surprise out of town guests who showed up around 11 last night.  It was a big (but nice) surprise for me, however, the surprise for them is I haven't been to the market so all I have on hand for mixing up some brunch cocktails is some orange juice. Booze, of course, is never a problem. My bar is loaded with booze - you know me. It's just the mixers I'm low on. It was a big week for cool cocktails at my house with the heat index hitting 110 plus, lol.
No problem, if I have booze and O.J. cocktails will be had!
The Orange Blossom Martini Recipe
1-1/2 Oz. London Dry Gin
1/2 Oz. Cointreau
1-1/2 Oz. Fresh Orange Juice
Orange Twist
Edible Orange Blossom
(this would be a really nice garnish - no, I didn't have these either!)

Chill your glass in the freezer. Pour all the ingredients into a cocktail shaker with one cup of ice and shake until well chilled. Pour into your martini glass garnish with a decoratively carved orange twist, the edible orange blossom (optional) and enjoy.

Okay, brunch booze has been handled, obligatory blog photo taken.  Now I have to create the edibles from my sad little larder & fridge with just some eggs, milk, sour cream, stale bread, cheese and sausage.  A Breakfast Strata it is.
Yeah, the carved orange garnish is not perfect - gimme a break it's not even 6 in the morning yet!

There better be a serious hostess gift coming my way is all I can say.

P.S. National Orange Blossom Day is June 27th. Now I have a cocktail for it!
