This recipe for Blood Orange Negroni, is based on the classic Italian drink made up of Gin, Campari and Sweet Vermouth, and here it is simply topped off with a little splash of fresh squeezed blood orange juice. Shaken with ice and strained into a little glass — it’s one of my favorites.

In season from November to May, blood oranges are show stoppers in the kitchen. Not only are they deliciously sweet, juicy and tart, they are fragrant and quite dramatic. They make something ordinary into something quite special.

Sometimes I think their extreme good looks can be intimidating — people tend act a little star-struck around them. Just treat them like you would a normal orange, and you’ll get on fine. It really is OK, to just peel one and eat one, and not feel like you have to do something fancy with it. Although in time they will probably inspire you to.

I particularly love their juice, squeezed into sparkling water or champagne (think blood orange mimosas) and in various cocktails — margaritas, greyhounds, etc.

  1. My mom is not a big fan of gin and we want to make this as an aperitif for the turkey christmas dinner. What other type of spirit could I substitute (if any) ?

  2. love the blood orange “vibrancy” here, colorwise and even a little bit of healthy Vitamin C to offset the alcohol, at least that’s what I tell myself! Thank you for a wonderful cocktail recipe!

  3. I have never drink this juice before. With your help i hope i will able to prepare this myself. Hahahaha! I guess i will try!

  4. This is amazing – I found it recommended on bloglovin.

    Hendricks is quite possibly my favourite gin and it tastes amazing. I need to get hold of some campari, as I have the sweet vermouth.

    Lovely recipe.
