Vodka, Marsala wine and champagne over ice with fresh squeezed orange juice. Skewered with fresh lime and pitted sweet red Bing cherries! Cheers!

Makes 1

For each Sharon’s Orange Tea:

tall glass with ice cubes

1 shot vodka

1 shot Marsala wine

3 shots fresh squeezed orange juice, strained to remove pulp

top with champagne, then more ice to fill

Garnish: Long wooden skewer of lime wedge on bottom of top 3rd of skewer (pulp facing down, skin facing up)

3 whole pitted Bing cherries, skewered to sit on top of lime wedge

Notes: Years ago my favorite drink when out at a restaurant was a Long Island Ice Tea, no sour, fresh lemon on the side. A couple long sips right out of the gate, and my dystonic muscles would calm enough for me to enjoy the event. I stopped drinking them, when nobody ever made them right, and when somebody did, it was an effort to get it done. It wasn’t worth the hassle.

Reminiscing the other day – our day off plus we were celebrating one of our anniversaries – I decided to create something better. It’s called Sharon’s Orange Tea. Good. Nice. Refreshing. Easy.
