Pardis margaritas Pardis Stitt has a unique twist on the classic margarita. 

Frank Stitt's wife and business partner, Pardis prefers her margaritas with fresh orange juice. And her version became so popular that it is a mainstay at Bottega Cafe. I love to make these at home during fun family times together. And one Christmas holiday, when I was under the weather, my family made them for me. The alcohol and the Vitamin C proved to be a cure all.

The beautiful red-orange color of this drink in a simple martini glass is an elegant reminder of the holiday season. 

Each year, Chris and Idie Hastings, owners of Hot and Hot Fish Club, enjoys hosting a holiday Christmas party for their neighborhood. And their friends and family agree that the Blood Orange Martinis are the highlight of this festive affair.
