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.
- 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.

Pour all of the ingredients into a shaker and allow to chill.
Shake it up!!!
Garnish with a nice big orange wheel.
Sit back, relax, and imagine yourself outside… maybe in an orange grove. 😉
