Tangerine Martinis

This was the perfect drink for a night in with fajitas! For the drink you need, 3 tangerines, 2/3 cup cranberry juice, 1 cup water, 1 cup sugar, 1 1/2 cups vodka and either 1 lemon or 2 limes.

First, you squeeze the juice from the tangerines into a saucepan and then throw the skin from the tangerines in too! Add the sugar and the water and bring to a boil over medium heat. Once it starts to boil, let it simmer for about 5 minutes. Remove and strain into a container that will fit in your refrigerator. Let it sit in your fridge until it's chilled. 

I then decided to put everything in to a pitcher so I could just shake what I needed.  So I added the tangerine simple syrup, the cranberry juice, vodka, and the juice of either one lemon.. Stir and when ready pour in to a shaker over ice, shake away and serve.
