Blood Orange Recipes

Cocktails, Mains & Desserts


While the blood orange season runs from October through May, you can enjoy blood orange year-round with delicious Italian Volcano blood orange juice (read our review) or blood orange purée from Perfect Purée of Napa Valley (read our review).


  • Blood Orange Cocktail: In a mixing glass combine 1 ounce gin or other white spirit with 3/4 ounce blood orange purée,* 1/2 teaspoon simple syrup. Shake over ice, strain into a glass and garnish with a sprig of mint and a lime wheel.
  • Bloody Screwdriver: Make this classic drink with blood orange juice instead of conventional juice. Per cocktail, mix 1.5 ounces vodka and 6 ounces blood orange juice. Serve in a collins glass with ice.
  • Bloody Mimosa:  To make this popular sparkler, combine 1/2 ounce triple sec or other orange liqueur with 1-1/2 ounces blood orange juice and 3-1/2 ounces of chilled Champagne or other sparkling wine. Make twists from the orange peel for garnish.
  • Frozen Cocktail: Make your favorite frozen drink with blood orange juice.
  • Saké Cocktail: Make Blood Orange-Infused Saké.
