This Blood Orange Gin & Tonic is a refreshing and seasonal spin on a classic G&T!
Best part of any holiday? The cocktails. You can get away with fun unique cocktails … And usually you can throw a couple in at brunch without too many people frowning. Regardless, happy hour is amped up with this Blood Orange Gin & Tonic! It’s a great as a standalone drink (those nights where you need a quick night cap) or make multiple in a pitcher to share with friends.
This was a good time to make. Ok and to drink 😉 Blood oranges have a short season and I’d love to use them as much as possible when they’re here. I eat them for dessert when I have a few spare around. Their deep pink colour is so vibrant and pretty, not to shortchange their citrus flavour that is like a hit of sunshine we Canadians are desperately missing this time of year.
If you aren’t into gin, take out the gin and tonic and use bubbles! A perfectly respectable mimosa.
