Recipe | The Winter Citrus Cocktail


With citrus fruits being in prime season at the moment I could resist grabbing a few of the delicious and bright "Cara Cara" oranges at the grocery store. I've also been stocking up on lemons for detoxing with hot water; so with plenty of citrus lying around the house I decided to whip up a cocktail the over the weekend. 


This one is perfect for brunch and can be made with or without alcohol! It's tangy, bubbly, and super refreshing. The Rosemary garnish adds a sweet touch as well. 


You'll Need...
Half of a Cara Cara orange
1/4 of a lemon
Club soda
Rosemary
Gin

To Make...
Squeeze juice from your orange and lemon
Pour over ice
Add 1 part Gin
Top with Club Soda
Garnish with slices of lemon, orange, and Rosemary


Have you been making any citrus based cocktails this winter? What drink are you loving at the moment?

*If you can also add a bit of simple syrup to the drink if you want to sweeten it up a bit. Regular simple syrup or Rosemary infused simple syrup works really nicely.

  1. This drink looks delicious! It helps that I am a fan girl of some Gin! I might need to mix one of these up sometime soon. ;) I actually just had a fantastic salad the other day topped with grapefruit. Not a favorite citrus choice of mine, but was fantastic paired on this mix of greens!

    1. You should totally make the rosemary infused simple syrup then! I feel like you would love how that pairs with the drink!
