Jack O’ Lantern Martini

This cocktail was developed when I was searching for the perfect Halloween cocktail and could not think of anything to prepare. I was sitting in my kitchen staring at an orange and wanted to try experimenting. All of a sudden I got the idea to carve the orange to look like a typical Jack O’ Lantern! It was really easy and I decided it would be a perfect garnish for a martini! The highlight of this recipe is the garnish but this is also a really good spin on the typical martini and the color makes it very festive for a Halloween Party or just hanging out at home! You could also make this into a boozy martini punch with a cool orange ice ring!
