One thing I miss living here in sunny Costa Rica is blood oranges. Beautifully coloured and deelish, they are a real treat for the senses. This cocktail is so pretty, I think it would be perfect for a summer soiree. This will take a bit of work (be warned) as you’ll have to juice the oranges (but if you have a juicer or better, a caterer to do all the heavy lifting for you, no sweat).
Blood Orange Cocktail
2 oz vodka
1/4 oz Triple Sec
1/4 oz simple syrup (2 cups sugar, 2 cups water – pour water into sugar, boil for 1 minute, cool)
2.5 oz blood orange juice
Place all ingredients into cocktail shaker. Shake, strain into cocktail glass. Enjoy!
