Looking for the perfect winter cocktail? Blood oranges are the answer! Mixed with spicy ginger beer and a touch of lime this gorgeously hued drink is your new winter sipper.

I don’t know what it is, but there’s something really special about blood oranges. Taste-wise, people have differing opinions. Some say they don’t notice anything different between it and a navel orange. Others say it’s bitter, some are sweeter, and there are those that taste berry overtones.

I think this orange is like wine, everyone tastes something different! Either way, I can’t get enough of them during their brief winter appearance. The gorgeous hue, the less acidic taste (and yes, I do think they are sweeter), means it’s the perfect vessel for cocktail making.

I’ve made my fair share of cocktails with blood oranges. I personally haven’t found a spirit that doesn’t complement its flavor profile. After all, it is a citrus fruit, and they are the backbone of most cocktail recipes. It only makes sense to have some fun.

This time around, my attention has turned to the Moscow mule. I’ve always considered it a blank canvas for endless possibilities, especially since so many things go with ginger – the base of this delectable cocktail. This time, I kept it simple, eschewing herbs or added bitters in order for the blood orange juice to really shine through.

Each sip gives you a taste of sweetness with spice from the ginger beer, and of course the bonus of a blood orange slice to snack on as garnish! Who doesn’t love a cocktail that automatically includes snacking opportunities? I know that’s why I love to sip on a Bloody Mary too.

Sip up, friends. Blood oranges won’t be around for long!
