Offer your guests a signature drink that takes its cue from the season. Made with citrus-flavored vodka and triple sec, these Citrus Martinis celebrate winter, when citrus fruits are at their peak -- although their color and light flavor would make them refreshing in the summer as well. Vibrant candied clementines (available at Italian markets) give guests a hint of the drink's flavor; the garnish also provides a sweet contrast to the pleasing tartness of the liquor. Beaded picks match the bright hue of the fruit; use orange scalloped note cards as coasters.
