Every year I am absolutely obsessed with blood oranges when they come into season. The color is STUNNING and the juice adds a lovely bit of sweet citrus to cocktails. One of my favorite ways to use the juice is in a Moscow Mule. To enjoy these year round I juice a large batch of them and freeze it into cubes in silicone ice trays. Then, when I want to make a cocktail and they are out of season, I just pop a few cubes in a shaker with the liquor I’m using and it is just like fresh squeezed. This is a fantastic hack I learned from my friend Josh. Hi Josh!!
If you’d like to make this a low sugar version, substitute a zero sugar ginger beer. I like Reed’s but there are tons of options out there now. Basically, choose ingredients YOU like and you’ll love the end result. Let’s make a mule!
Here’s what you need:
- 1.5 oz Vodka
- 1 oz Blood Orange Juice (about the juice of 1-2 oranges)
- 1/2 oz Lime Juice
- 3-4 oz Ginger Beer
In a mule mug or glass filled with ice add all of your ingredients and gently stir together. Garnish with a blood orange wheel. Done. Delish. Sip. Enjoy!
