  • 1 1/2 oz of your favorite Gin or Whiskey
  • 1 glass of ice
  • 1 good quality Ginger Ale, such as Boylan’s
  • 1/8 of a Blood Orange (regular oranges are fine too)
  • Mint, optional


Squeeze the juice out of one section of orange into a glass with as much or as little ice as you like. If using mint, crush a few leaves between your fingers and add to the glass. Top with alcohol of choice and fill with ginger ale. Garnish with the same orange wedge.

I encourage you to try it both ways at least once–we originally thought the gin would be better but ended up preferring the whiskey.
