Blood Orange Gin Cocktail

Tara Kringlen
Fragrant and botanical gin is one of the stars of the show in this blood orange gin cocktail. Fresh blood orange juice is combined with sugar and rosemary to make an easy and flavorful simple syrup. Gin, lime juice, the blood orange simple syrup and a little club soda pair together beautifully in taste and looks for this refreshing cocktail.
