I love the local movement in Ojai, the proud farmers, and their sweet, seedless, delicious tangerines. Pixie Tangerines are delicious eaten out-of-hand, the juice makes a beautiful vinaigrette whisked with a teaspoon of Dijon mustard and olive oil and their flavor lends itself to this refreshing cocktail beautifully, highlighting some of my favorite flavors. Cheers to Spring
