Pomegranate and Rosemary Blood Orange Cocktail


Pomegranate, rosemary, and blood orange. What could possibly be missing from this all-star trio? Oh yes, the liquor. The vodka and cointreau in this wintery cocktail pair perfectly with the citrus and herb flavors throughout! Throw some crushed ice in there and you've got a tasty cocktail, perfect for a winter night.

The perfect combination

I can honestly say this cocktail is one of my favorites, ever. If you're a fan of OJ, cointreau (trust me its GOOD), and the subtle sweetness of rosemary, or any combination of the three, then you will love this. Make it for your friends and family and it is sure to be a fan favorite.

Rosemary simple syrup

One of the key components to this winter cocktail is the rosemary simple syrup. This is what gives it that sweet rosemary flavor, paired with the strong citrus base! It's tasty and so easy to make, and it only takes a couple minutes to achieve that blissful sweetness!

Sliced blood orange

Grab your best winter citrus...

That blood orange flavor is so refreshing and sweet I swear I could just drink the blood orange puree by itself. I highly recommend also getting a blood orange and slicing it up to squeeze some natural juice into your cocktail, and then just let the rest of the juice from the wedge soak right in.

Isn't she lovely. But seriously, this blood orange refreshment tastes as good as it looks. The vodka mixes in perfectly with the citrus flavors, and the cointreau is the key to bringing it all together.
