A perfect adult party shot for Easter, or any warm-weather gathering, inside or out!
If you’ve never fallen in love with a cocktail, it’s likely because you’ve never made anything so teeny, weeny and adorable as these spiked Mini Orange Shots.
Never much of a mimosa drinker, I wondered if making them with vodka and Mandarin (mini orange) juice would change my mind.
IT SURE DID!
Turns out, cocktails made with Mandarin-orange juice and citrus vodka is just about the best thing evrrrr. And that’s not the citrus vodka talking.
Here’s how to make these wickedly sweet shots. Because, obviously. Now that you know they exist, you have to.
Serve them for brunch. Sip them for lunch. Shoot them at your next GNO. However you enjoy them, you simply must make them…
Begin with a pack of mini Mason jar shot glasses. I was delighted to discover my local craft store sells packs of them for less than $10. Perfection! I’ll be using these babies a lot! Mini Mason jars are just too cute to boot!
Rim each mini jar with a bit of honey and orange sugar crystals. It’s a pretty start to a durn pretty sip!
Now grab that citrus vodka we talked about, a little triple sec, and fresh-squeeze yourself some mini oranges (like Cuties or Halos).
Then cocktail shake it all together with a wee bit o’ ice. And pour away!
Add a quick garnish of mini-orange slices, mint leaves, and mini paper straws.
These are the cutest little shots ever!
