Instead of braving the packed restaurants with over priced menu’s this valentines day, opt for a night in with a delicious home-crafted cocktail.
This blood orange cocktail fits the bill perfectly with the crisp gin, floral St.Germain and tangy blood orange juice.
Here’s how to make one:
Blood Orange Cocktail
- 1 oz gin
- 3/4 oz St. Germain (elderflower liqueur)
- 1/2 oz lime juice
- 2 1/2 oz ginger ale
- 1 oz blood orange juice
- In a serving glass, combine gin, St. Germain, lime juice, and ginger ale.
- Top glass with ice.
- Slowly pour in blood orange juice.
- Garnish with blood orange slices and fresh lemon thyme sprigs, if desired. Serve immediately.
And that’s it!
Super simple, but tastes very intricate and is the perfect accompaniment to a romantic evening at home.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
