Theres something truly satisfying about fixing your friends a cocktail with some home flavoured vodka. Blood oranges are just in season right now and have a gorgeous ruby red interior, perfect for flavouring some boring old vodka!
To make this beauty I simply took 4 ripe blood oranges, and squeezed the juice of three of them, removing any pips. I then sliced the final one so it would fit into the kilner bottle. Then I simply added the juice, orange slices and a spoon of caster sugar into the bottle and topped with vodka. It's best to leave this for about a week to really get a good flavour and the oranges will turn the vodka a beautiful pale pink colour.
I like to make a fruity cocktail with this vodka by adding one measure (or two, hey Im not judging!) to a jam jar filled with ice, top with old fashioned cloudy lemonade and add a splash of grenadine for sweetness.
These are so great as present ideas as well. Why not try with other fruits or even things like skittles?
As always send me pictures your creations!
