Blood Orange Cocktail

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


  1. In a serving glass, combine gin, St. Germain, lime juice, and ginger ale.
  2. Top glass with ice.
  3. Slowly pour in blood orange juice.
  4. 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!
