A Blood Orange Gin & Tonic As Dramatic As You Are July 4, 2017
Gin & Tonic is always a favourite drink on a hot summer’s day. But add blood orange, and voila! You have a moody, dramatic cocktail starring one of our favourite winter fruits.
Now, we’d never accuse anyone of being overly dramatic, but we think a touch of the theatrical makes for great fun, and even greater drinks. If you’re feeling a little more special than standard G&Ts, we highly recommend this aromatic blend with a wedge of deep, dark blood orange flesh. It will put you in a better mood from the first sip.
- 50ml gin
- 70ml fresh blood orange juice
- 2 dashes orange bitters
- 120ml tonic water
- Fill a glass with ice. Add gin, blood orange juice, and orange bitters.
- Top with tonic water and gently stir.
- Garnish with a blood orange slice and serve.
