Here is a cocktail you can "take to the bank." This is a delicious drink for a power lunch or afternoon meeting. Enjoy! 

(Adapted from a recipe by Eric Alperin at The Varnish)


  • 1 1/2 oz. vodka
  • 1/2 oz. dry vermouth
  • 1/2 oz. orange liqueur
  • 1/2 oz. orange juice, freshly squeezed
  • 1/2 oz. grapefruit juice, freshly squeezed
  • Garnish- grapefruit or orange twist


  1. Add all the ingredients into a shaker with ice and shake until well chilled.
  2. Strain into a glass (we chose a champagne coupe) over fresh ice.
  3. Garnish with a grapefruit or orange twist (we chose an orange twist).
  • Perfect hints of orange and grapefruit
  • The twist of orange adds that pop of color
