BLOOD ORANGE PALOMA COCKTAIL

A cocktail that is both thirst-quenching and rejuvenating to the palate, this cocktail comes with a distinctive bite to the taste. Experience the bitter-sweet taste glide through your palate only to leave it with the herbal aftertaste of thyme.

1 jigger, Whitley Neill Blood Orange Gin

Freshly squeezed juice of 1 lime

4 jiggers of freshly squeezed or packed grapefruit juice

Start by macerating the thyme leaves in the cocktail mixer. Next, add crushed ice. Add the gin, lime, and grapefruit. Give the mixture a good shake. Lastly, empty into a clear glass filled with ice. Garnish.

2. Grapefruit Gin Spritz Cocktail
