Cocktail Hour: The Orange Blossom

Simply Orange Cocktail Recipe - Grace Atwood - The Stripe - The Orange Blossom8

Today’s cocktail hour is a delicious one… and the perfect way to bring a little bit of sunshine and nature into your daily life during this dreary weather! Meet the Orange Blossom. This cocktail was very popular back during Prohibition (especially amongst the flapper set) as orange juice was the perfect way to disguise alcohol. It’s similar to the Screwdriver, but a bit more sophisticated. And, it’s pretty much impossible to mess up – it contains just three ingredients, all in equal portions.

I love this one right now as I feel like I’m stepping outside of New York when I enjoy it… and into the great outdoors, somewhere warm. Lately I’ve been relying upon little tricks to bring nature into my home… fruity cocktails, fresh flowers on my table… and a little garden I’ve started growing in my windowsill.

You’ll Need… 

  • 1.5 oz. Simply Orange Pulp Free Orange Juice
  • 1.5 oz. Sweet Vermouth
  • 1.5 oz. Gin
  • An orange wheel for garnish.

I worked with Simply Orange on this recipe… Simply Orange is my favorite orange juice as it has grove to glass taste, is never frozen or from concentrate, and is never sweetened! It’s also delicious on it’s own… but more fun as a cocktail of course! For my New York readers, head over to gothamtogrove.com for more Simply ideas and coupons.

Sit back, relax, and imagine yourself outside… maybe in an orange grove. 😉

    Looks delish! Also nice response to POTS. Gracious and educated. Sounds like she may have confused it with another brand. I splurge sometimes and go to ,y local Molly Stone. They have a machine that squeezes the OJ to order! I agree this is the next best thing. Not everyone has the time or luxury get fresh squeezed.

    One of the heroines in the prohibition book I’m reading: Come Hell or Highball, by Maia Chance, is swilling Orange Blossoms in the speakeasy. Thanks to you, I may enjoy one also. To make it truly speakeasy, it must be served in a coffee cup! (As Florida folk, we enjoy Simply Orange whether fruit is in season or not!)
