  1. Combine creme de cacao, vodka, and vanilla-flavored vodka in a cocktail shaker. Secure lid on shaker and shake vigorously.
  2. Spread sugar onto a flat plate wider than your martini glasses. Run the orange wedge along the lip of each martini glass to assure it's moistened all the way around; dip martini glasses in sugar to coat.

  • Cook's Notes:

  • Editor's Note:
  • The nutrition data for this recipe includes the full amount of the sugar and the orange used to rim the glasses. The actual amount of the sugar consumed will vary.
