Blood Orange Gin Cocktail

Servings 2 drinks


  • Ice
  • 1 blood orange, freshly squeezed (you'll just need the juice–I used a strainer to easily avoid seeds)
  • 1.5 oz gin (I used Junipero)
  • Splash of simple syrup
  • Lime seltzer
  • 1 blood orange, sliced


  1. Fill a glass 3/4 of the way with ice and add the freshly squeezed blood orange juice.

  2. Add gin and a splash of simple syrup. Don't use a heavy hand on the syrup unless you want the drink to be sweeter! A little goes a long way.

  3. Top off with lime seltzer and a sliced blood orange.

Recipe Notes

I used 12oz glasses–definitely adjust the proportions if you're using a larger glass!
