More About This Recipe

  • Everyone knows the standard vodka and orange juice combination that is a screwdriver. But you can get a lot more creative than that old favorite if you reach for a different fruit in the citrus aisle. Blood oranges are tarter and pack a more intense flavor burst than a normal navel orange, and their red hue adds some nice color to your cocktail. Here is a simple recipe that combines a freshly squeezed orange with ginger beer and gin for a herbaceous treat. Enjoy!
