The Antioxidant

The Antioxidant is a martini made with Aperol and Tangerine juice. As we go from summer into fall, this is the perfect seasonal happy hour drink that has ingredients from both seasons. Serves 1.


  • Combine vodka, orange juice, tangerine syrup, aperol, and lime juice in a cocktail shaker with ice. Cover and shake vigorously until chilled throughout. Strain into cocktail glasses.
  • For garnish, hold a two-finger-wide strip of orange peel with outside of peel facing glass. Hold a lighter or match just in front of the peel and allow to warm for 10 seconds. Quickly squeeze the peel to release the flammable oils (watch your eyebrows!) Rub peel around edge of glass and serve.
