Fire and Ice – a Cocktail Recipe by quornflour

A while back I was visiting friends and they told me of this cocktail they had gotten somewhere. Now I couldn’t really remember what it was other than it was a martini and it had burnt orange oil in it.

So on a recent visit with them, I stopped at the liquor store and picked up what I thought should go in the drink. Apparently it was not the same, for starters, the one they had was a gin martini and I picked up vodka instead. But regardless, it was super delicious, and almost festive. Fire and ice is festive after all isn’t it?

Here is what you will need:

  • 1 orange
  • Cointreau
  • Vodka
  • Ice
  • Matches

We used a 16oz shaker for 2 drinks…

  1. Fill your shaker with ice
  2. Add 3 oz Cointreau
  3. Top with vodka
  4. Shake vigorously
  5. Slice the pith and zest off the orange
  6. Light match
  7. Bend peal over the flame aiming for the glass

Now I suspect you could also add the oil and then light the drink on fire, but I haven’t tried that…
