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
  1. Shake well and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a quartered orange wheel.
