Heat 1/2 cup of orange juice, and squeeze in about 2 T of local honey, with a left-over vanilla bean. (This one was sitting in a bowl of sugar. Let honey melt and mixture reduce to about 1/3 cup, then let cool.
Roll 4-5 limes on the counter and cut in half. If larger than our lime juicer, cup of a slide for decoration. Juice the limes into a pitcher, to which add 4 oz of good tequila, an ounce of sweet vermouth, a dash of good bitters and the orange juice. Add plenty of ice, let chill while you mix smoked paprika and salt in a wide bowl. I saved the lime rinds in the measuring device for the tequila, and poured some soda water over them and drank this later.
Get the martini glasses from the freezer, dip the rims in the salt+paprika. Then strain some of the pitcher’s contents into each glass – not too full. Add a slice you saved out from the larger limes to the rim and serve. The following pours will be slightly more diluted by the melting ice, but just as delicious.
