Blood Orange Cocktail
Amanda Simpson and Tyler Durrett

One of the strongest and, in my opinion, best ginger beers on the market is Stewart's brand. Stewart's ginger beer is one of the few that will actually make your mouth tingle and turn warm from the strength of the ginger. While any brand of ginger beer will work, this recipe was formulated with Stewart's and if you can find it, I would suggest using it.

INGREDIENTS

For garnish (can be used for more than one cocktail):

  • 1/4 cup blood orange juice
  • Zest of one blood orange
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • Slices of blood orange, for garnish

For one drink:

  • 1 cup ice
  • 2 ounces blood orange juice
  • 1.5 ounces tequila
  • Juice from 1 wedge of lime
  • 3 ounces strong ginger beer

DIRECTIONS

For the garnish:

Place 1/4 cup of the blood orange juice into a bowl. In a separate bowl, combine the blood orange zest and sugar. 

Dip the rim of a high ball glass into the orange juice first, and then into the orange zest-sugar mixture to coat the rim evenly.

For the drink:

In a cocktail shaker, combine a cup of ice, 2 ounces blood orange juice, 1.5 ounces tequila, and a squeeze of lime juice. Close the shaker and shake vigorously. If you don't have a cocktail shaker, combine ingredients in a liquid measuring cup and stir well.

Pour beverage from shaker into the prepared high ball glass. Top drink off with ginger beer and stir lightly with a mixing stick or small spoon. Garnish the rim with a blood orange slice and serve immediately. (Repeat recipe over...and over...and over...as desired — and responsibly.)
