Yes indeed, seeing as citrus are still in season most of the northern hemisphere, and are generally available year round down south. Here are some more delicious cocktails to try.

Blood Orange Collins

  • 15ml Campari
  • 15ml Lemon juice
  • 15ml pink grapefruit juice
  • 15ml blood orange juice
  • 5ml sugar syrup
  • Soda water

Combine all ingredients minus the soda water in a cocktail shaker. Fill with ice and give it a quick rigorous shake. If using party ice be quick, otherwise it will dilute too quickly. If using home made solid ice cubes, you can give it a slightly longer shake. Strain the mix into a highball glass. Fill with ice and top with soda water or, schweppes ciata. Garnish with a cherry and a blood orange slice.


Sea Breeze

  • 45ml vodka
  • Cranberry juice
  • Fresh grapefruit juice

Pour vodka into a highball glass filled with ice. Three-quarters fill the glass with cranberry juice and top with fresh grapefruit juice. Garnish with a lime quarter.


Metropolis

  • 1 splash Triple Sec

Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail glass.

Pimms Winter Cup

  • 30ml Pimms
  • 20ml Johnnie Walker Red
  • Dry ginger ale
  • Squeeze fresh orange

Build over ice in a tall glass. Garnish with a squeeze of fresh orange. A fresh winter warmer, Pimms served long with scotch and ginger ale is really a treat.
