Here’s a good one for the season – the complex flavors of it make it one of the few citrus cocktails that would be truly appropriate on, say, Christmas Eve. I had a drink by the same name years ago in San Francisco, and tried to recreate it when I got back home. This is what I came up with, and it ended up being nothing like the original recipe, so I called it my own (this version is leaps and bounds better, anyway)
So here it is, probably the best drink I’ve ever created, the Blood Orange:
The Blood Orange Print Me
- 1.5 oz Bombay Sapphire Gin
- .75 oz Campari
- .75 oz dry vermouth
- 1.5 oz fresh orange juice
- Shake well and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a quartered orange wheel.

Just made this and it’s fantastic
This is a great drink but it’s even better with a dash of orange bitters.
