Blood Orange Vodka Soda Cocktail

Blood Orange Vodka Soda Cocktail

Happy Friday everyone! Fridays are never complete without a cocktail in hand. Because citrus season is in its peak this cocktail is showcasing the beautiful blood oranges, for a Blood Orange Vodka Soda Cocktail.

If you have never had a blood orange they are beyond delightful. A really unique citrus fruit. First off their color is so vibrant and rich. The powerful deep red orange is so beautiful when you cut into a blood orange. It makes you smile to see such a color. The flavor of a blood orange isn’t like an orange or mandarin. It lacks the fruity sweetness you would get from an orange fruit. Blood oranges are more bitter in flavor. They aren’t bitter, but just slightly bitter in flavor. Of course they still have a touch of sweetness and are very juicy.

For this cocktail mixing the juice of blood oranges and lemons with the intensity of vodka and effervescence of the soda water is such a treat. Really this cocktail is refreshing. If blood oranges were season all year round I would probably make this my go to cocktail.

Adding a nice garnish to a cocktail has really elevated the mixology game. I am not a mixologist. I have gained a strong appreciation for the creations that mixologists think up. Garnishing this blood orange vodka soda cocktail with a beautifully vibrant green mint leaf enhances the beauty of the blood orange juice color. As well as makes the cocktail even more refreshing.
