Blood Orange Tonics

It’s been way too long since we shared a new cocktail recipe. We picked up some blood oranges the other week and were faced with a dilemma. Use them on shrimp or just grill the shrimp with some Old Bay and gussy up some cocktails with the BOJ (blood orange juice.)

Well you know us….

Blood Orange Tonics

  • 2 oz vodka or gin
  • 2 oz blood orange juice
  • 1/2 tsp simple syrup
  • sprig of rosemary
  • tonic water

Pour liquor, juice and simple syrup into a Collins glass with ice. Top with tonic water and rosemary sprig.

    Sounds delicious, this could be refreshing blood orange juice for vampire shift workers.

    Where did the blood oranges come from? I was doing a shoot last week and needed them but they were nowhere to be found, had to use Cara Cara. Love a cocktail with a savoury herb like this.

    I’ve got a blood orange sitting on my kitchen counter, I can see a cocktail in the making. 🙂

    If all blood will taste like this, I’ll probably sucking blood daily 😀
