Blood Orange Cocktail Recipe

Happy Hour: Uber Orange Cocktail

After making a blood orange margarita, I had a couple of blood oranges lying around. Thus, I decided to juice them and use them in another cocktail — this time with gin as the base spirit. The resulting drink is packed with the refreshing flavor of oranges. Its gorgeous color makes it easy to sip and the addition of agave nectar provides a necessary, but not overpowering sweetness. If you're a fan of oranges, you'll enjoy this beverage. Don't like gin? Use vodka instead! Here's my recipe.
