March is acting true to form - coming in like a lion with snow and freezing temperatures but quickly becoming a lamb. We'll still have some very cold days before spring but we're starting to get a taste of warmth and sunshine.
I desperately needed a warm day in the park because this month has been filled with broken keys in locks, broken photography equipment and a dog needing heart meds. Fortunately the market is still filled with winter citrus including varieties of grapefruit, oranges and juicy tangerines that were destined for a cocktail. It's a simple blend of whiskey, juices, fresh mint and ice but the result is so refreshing. Cheers!
Tangerine Mint Whiskey Slush

- 1/2 Cup tangerine juice
- 2 oz. Lemon juice
- 2 oz. Simple syrup
- Handful of fresh mint
- Add the whiskey, tangerine juice, lemon juice, simple syrup and mint to a blender. Fill with ice and puree until all the large chunks are broken up.
- Serve in chilled cocktail glasses and garnish with sprigs of fresh mint and wedges of tangerine, if desired.
