It’s Dry January and I believe mocktails should be just as delicious, if not even more delicious, than regular cocktails. For this sparkling blood orange mocktail, I made a blood orange simple syrup from freshly squeezed blood oranges, creating a super refreshing and thirst-quenching citrus drink.
4 ounces blood orange simple syrup
2 ounces lime juice
In a cocktail shaker, add the blood orange simple syrup, lime juice, and ice.
Shake and pour into glass.
Top with sparkling water.
Optional: Garnish with blood orange or lime slices.
For blood orange simple syrup, combine 1 cup water, 1 cup sugar, 1 cup freshly squeezed blood orange juice in saucepan. Allow to simmer on low heat and stir until sugar is dissolved. Let cool before using.
