Blood Drop Cocktails

Each year I buy a bunch of blood oranges, to make some home-made dehydrated slices for my cocktails. When I have a few extra, I squeeze them for the delicious bloody red orange juice.

When juice of blood oranges is used in cocktails, they often use too much. I like cocktails with max. 15 ml of this juice in them. I call them ‘Blood Drop cocktails’. They work best in sour style cocktails.

Blood Drop Margarita

5 cl Tequila silver
1,5 cl Lime juice
1,5 cl Blood orange juice
3 cl Cointreau Blood Orange
Optional : ½ bsp Agave syrup

Shake with lots of ice. Double strain in a Margarita glass. Add a cocktail cherry.

1,5 cl Blood orange juice
