Drink of the Week

Well, been a while since I have posted the Tuesday Tipple.

Been a while since I posted.

I suck at this blogging stuff, I know.

Anyway, this week marks the return of booze to H&B, and since citrus is in season, I thought I would feature blood oranges. Really, how apt is it that I like BLOOD oranges?? This should not shock anyone. I was inspired by the Orange Blossom cocktail and made my own take on it, replacing the type of juice and Cointreau for vermouth.

Bloody Blossom

  • 1 part gin (botanical, preferred)
  • 1 part Cointreau
  • 2 parts blood orange juice
  • ½ part simple syrup (optional)

Pour all ingredients in an ice-filled shaker and mix well. Serve in a coupe or cocktail glass of choice.

Tip: if the juice is fresh squeezed, you may want to strain in a fine sieve first to remove excess pulp. Also, skip the simple syrup if you prefer less sweet. Hope y’all enjoy this bloody cocktail 😉
