How about an orange twist on a Vodka Martini? This lightly orange-flavored cocktail is a good way to cool down on hot summer nights.

As Martinis go, this is one of my favorite aperitifs and pairs well with salmon, salads, or any other light, "springy" meal. Many people prefer vodka in this cocktail, but I find that using gin creates a beautifully complex citrus drink.
