What to do with orange vodka?

I recently received a gift of a very large bottle of Grey Goose orange vodka. Any delicious recipes out there for orange vodka? The grey goose website had only a couple. Thanks.
Not sure if you want drink recipes (tons of which you can find on a Google search) or baking or cooking recipes, but here are a couple I found:
Pecan Crusted Chicken with Orange Vodka Sauce -
Screwdriver Carrot Cake - http://www.pastrywiz.com/archive/scre...
That's funny -- a while back I had a very good bloody mary at a bar and asked the bartender his secret. He said he added just a splash of orange juice. I've been doing that ever since (just a teaspoon or so per drink). It never occurred to me to use orange vodka though -- I thought it was the extra acid in the OJ that perked up the tomato juice, but maybe it's the orange flavor itself.
Definitely a chocolate martini. Just mix with clear creme de cacao; people very widely on their desired proportions. Orange vodka is better than adding orange curucao/triple sec/cointreau to plain vodka.
Run! Go quickly, come back slowly. (Sorry, my anti-vodka prejudices are showing...)
Come to think of it, a very strongly-flavored orange vodka might be just the thing for dry classic cocktails. You could substitute orange vodka for Curaco, Grand Marnier, or Triple Sec, and sweeten to taste with simple syrup.
