Moscow Mules have been the rage for a couple years now, and with great reason. They’re tasty, easy to make, and look so showy in that fab copper mug. We’re making an elegant spin on the classic cocktail with this Blood Orange Moscow Mule recipe.
A typical Moscow Mule drink has a great fresh, slightly citrus-y flavor. This blood orange version kicks that flavor up a notch or 20. Blood oranges are generally available January through May, and we’re at the point in the season when these tasty morsels are at their best. What better way to welcome Spring?
This is a great beverage for a party or a brunch, since it’s so easy to make. Blood oranges tend to be sweeter than regular oranges, and can have a slightly raspberry-ish taste. Add that to the gorgeous red tone of the flesh, and you have something that’s really special and elegant.
