Blood Orange & Basil Mojito

Blood Orange and Basil Mojito | Well Seasoned Gourmet Food Store

Fresh blood oranges are slipping away from the shelves at the local supermarkets but if you look, you can still find a few. It’s really worth the effort! Nothing feels more like summer than sitting on your deck sipping the first cocktails of the season. If you’re lucky some of your herbs survived the winter and you can even pick some fresh. Or you've already gotten a head start on your planting with the past few sunny weekends!

One of our favourite cocktails hands downs is the Mojito, and we couldn't think of a better drink to kick off Mixology Month!  We love working on new ways to shake them up & keep things interesting. In this version, we have incorporated the fresh squeezed crimson juices of the blood orange.  And our favourite garnish - California Crisps! It’s fantastic but be warned, the go down like water and if it’s a hot day they will sneak up on you. Invite some friends over and have some fun.
