Perfect holiday season cocktail, coming right up!

This spiced orange gin and tonic is icy cold and refreshing, in a snowy holiday kind of way. Spiced orange syrup, gin and all its botanical flavors and tonic water over ice. This is serious present-wrapping or Thanksgiving-cooking perfection.

This time of year, I love making anything orange and spiced. Which is crazy, because I’m not a huge orange person. Like those chocolate oranges at Christmas that people would get in their stockings? Zero appeal to me. I do love the occasional chocolate covered citrus peel or even chocolate covered clementines, but only a bit. It’s never the flavor combo I’ll choose.

But spiced orange cocktails? Okay, I’m sold. When the thought of spiced orange syrup is mixed with icy boozy tonic water, it sounds fab to me.

A few years ago I shared these spiced orange spritzers and OH MY GOSH, they are heavenly. They are SO so delicious – a perfect treat for Thanksgiving morning, or even the day after. (However I will say, I’m a little partial to my tree trimming punch the day after Thanksgiving!).

These spiced orange gin and tonics are like that, but a bit more grown up and refreshing. No sparkling wine here, only gin. And tonic. And spiced orange syrup. Ha! 

Oh plus a sprig of rosemary or something similar. To make it extra festive. (more…)

I’d like an aperol spritz for every happy hour, from here on out! It’s beautiful and delicious and refreshing and wonderful.

Okay so if you’re sick of apple cider cocktails, I have the PERFECT drink for you. I mean, I absolutely love anything with apple cider. But I understand that not all of you do, and sometimes you just need a break from the cinnamony drink. Sometimes you want something more refreshing than warm. Something more citrusy and icy!

Enter the pomegranate aperol spritz. The perfect flavor combination cocktail for your fall weekend, Halloween celebration or Thanksgiving dinner.

This isn’t entirely new to me. Remember a few years ago when I made a winter aperol spritz with cranberry and rosemary?! That was my first foray into a flavored aperol spritz and I loved it.

And oh yes – I decided we most definitely needed a fall version.

Ironically, I have also made a spritz with apple cider! It’s delicious and wonderful. 

But so is this!

I actually like this one more than the winter spritz.

And I love pomegranate so much more than cranberry! I love that pomegranate has that tart punch but is also fruity and juicy. Combined with the orange?! Oooooh it is SO good.

This is all you need for your pomegranate aperol spritz:

  • Aperol over ice. This is one of my favorite things! Of course I prefer crushed ice, but use what you’ve got!
  • A splash of pomegranate juice. I say around one to two ounces – based on your preference. Add one ounce and then taste. Add more if you’d like more pomegranate flavor punch!
  • Prosecco comes next! My absolute favorite. It’s SO good, and you don’t need to break the bank on a bottle.
  • Finally, a splash of seltzer to balance things out.

The end result is a refreshing and citrusy spritz. It’s so light and wonderful, but has that classic pomegranate flavor. Oh and can we talk about how gorgeous it is too?!

Just look at that aperol and pomegranate swirling together to create the most beautiful shade. I love it! (more…)
