The Orange Blossom

Taking advantage of the construction for a industrial looking background

Here is another classic cocktail that many people like.

We hated it.

It does taste a little better if the fresh orange juice is increased to 1.5 ounces but all in all not a cocktail we will revisit.

The Orange Blossom

  • 1 oz gin
  • 1 oz sweet vermouth
  • 1 oz fresh orange juice

Fill a shaker with ice and add all ingredients. Shake well and serve in a chilled martini glass.

    Hahahaaa… I love the honesty in this post! Definitely understand though, I hate sweet orange cocktails (particularly with rum or whisky, which I think makes the whole thing taste like I’m drinking marmalade). The photo is awesome though!

    Wouldn’t be one of my favs either. Happy Thursday!

  4. Haha I love that you posted this even though you hated it. I don’t think I would like it either. I can’t imagine the acidity of the orange juice goes well with the gin.

  5. Oh dang! I love the name but you’ve easily convinced me not to bother with making one! How are y’all? DId you know we moved to North Carolina? We are no longer next door neighbors. 😦
