Ginger Blood Orange Fizz

As far as cocktail recipes go, they don’t come much more simple than this. Perfect for a nice quiet night relaxing on the patio or for your next cocktail party, the ginger blood orange fizz is a crisp and refreshing beverage you need for your happy hour. Whether you are looking for a weeknight beverage or a cocktail for those Spring and Summer holidays, this recipe is just what you need!

If your fridge is stocked like ours is, then you already have all the ingredients! If not, a quick run to the store should get you everything you need for this piece of cake cocktail. Traditionally a fizz is a gin based cocktail with an acidic juice and carbonated water, however the ginger blood orange fizz is a little different. The gin becomes vodka, the acidic juice becomes a blood orange soda and the carbonated water is part ginger beer and part blood orange soda. I prefer Reed’s Craft Ginger Beer found in most grocery stores (I pick mine up at New Seasons) and Villa Italia Blood Orange Soda found at Trader Joe’s. We keep our vodka in the freezer, which is perfect for this cool and refreshing drink.

Start with a highball glass with ice and pour over 1.5 ounces of vodka. Squirt half of a lime into the glass, then add equal parts ginger beer and blood orange soda. Depending on your taste preference you can make your beverage have some more tang by adding more ginger beer or have a sweeter drink in your glass by adding more blood orange soda. Garnish with a lime wedge and happy hour is set!

Once your cocktail is complete, pair it with a grilled steak and enjoy a delicious dinner or sip on it while you have something slow cooking on the smoker.
