Cocktail recipe: Blood Orange and Mezcal

Updated: Aug 2, 2019

My birthday month coincides with the blood orange season, and this super sweet variety of the citrus fruit tastes as good as it looks in a cocktail. Here's but one of the ways I like to mix it.

Ingredients for one

75ml freshly squeezed blood orange juice

50ml gin (Mezcal is a super alternative; the smoky tequila a lovely contrast to the sweet orange)

Couple of good dashes of orange bitters

Handful of ice cubes

Orange wedge to garnish


Fill a tumbler with ice.

Pour in the orange, bitters and gin (I do the gin last, as alcohol speeds up ice melting).


Add the wedge.
