Blood Orange Winter Spritz
I'm here to get you off your January booze cleanse (You're welcome!)
I can’t believe the crazy amount of stuff we accomplished today and this weekend. We finished up some homemade orange liqueur. We made cake, scones, fish tacos, corn fritters, and of course, a cocktail. And, I got a ton of laundry done. But it’s been a hot one. The windows are all open and they will be all night.
The French 75 is so perfect for just this occasion.
Light, fresh, fizzy and icy cold. Any questions?
Here’s what you need for one drink:
1 oz. gin
1/2 oz. lemon juice
1/2 oz. simple syrup
Finish with sparkling wine/champagne – about 3 oz.
lemon zest for garnish
Shake the gin, lemon juice and syrup with ice until as cold as you can handle it. Strain into a coupe glass. Finish with sparkling wine and top with a lemon zest.
