May01 Summer cocktail 2013
Summer is upon us (or already here for those of us lucky enough to live in warm places!), which means that porch-sitting, backyard-barbecuing, and cocktail-drinking are top priority.
The lovelies over at Valley & Co sent us this yummy recipe for a Blood Orange + Mint Sunset. Enjoy!
What you’ll need:
blood oranges || 1 oz. blood orange liqueur || .5 oz. gin || seltzer water || a handful of mint leaves || ice || fine grained sugar
Dampen the rim of a low ball glass and dip in sugar. Muddle a few mint leaves in the bottom the low ball. Add ice, blood orange liqueur and gin. Stir and top with seltzer water. Serve with orange wedges and mint leaves as garnish. Cheers!
Editor’s note: if you want a mocktail version, substitute the liqueur with blood orange juice and omit the gin.
