Everybody loves mimosas. Especially me! So for our Mothers Day styled photo shoot with Zooey Magazine, I wanted to reinvent this classic beverage! 

Blood Oranges are in season from about November to May, so this time of year is perfect to try this sweet beverage!

 

INGREDIENTS || 

orange juice

Sparkling Wine

Vodka

Blood Orange Bitters

Blood Orange Liquor

1 Blood Orange

 

METHOD ||

pour 1oz vodka into a glass with 3oz chilled orange juice into a glass. Fill the rest of the glass with champagne almost to the top. Slowly pour in the blood orange liquor. then top with three dashes of blood orange bitters and garnish with a blood orange wedge.  Yum. 

It kind of looks like a big stick popsicle!

Cocktails: Gin and Grapefruit Mixer (AKA the GREY FOX)

Beat the Heat with this zingy gin and grapefruit cocktail. 

Here in California, September means it’s just the beginning of a long, warm fall. So warm, in fact, that it almost feels like a second summer.  On these long, hot, lazy days the best remedy for beating the heat is a refreshing cocktail under a beach umbrella. Or in the air conditioned comfort of your living room. Try this zingy drink at your next barbeque, pool party or festive gathering… or whenever you feel too hot to carry on!
