Blood Orange Cooler


I’ve been doing a little experimenting in the kitchen lately to create a cocktail for the Stirrings “Stir It Up Holiday Blogger Mixology Challenge.” I hadn’t heard of Stirrings before this challenge and I’m sad I missed out on knowing about them this long. I love the four products I was able to sample and can’t wait to try more! I really like that their mixers are made with real fruit juice and cane sugar.

captureI received four of their products to work with to develop my cocktail:

Blood Orange Martini Cocktail Mixer
Peach Bellini Cocktail Mixer
Cosmopolitan Rimmer
Lemon Drop Rimmer

I knew immediately I wanted to make something with the Blood Orange mixer. I love all things blood orange – there’s just something about the tart and sweetness of them. So delicious! I came up with this delicious Blood Orange Cooler! It was a drink that made me think I was on warm, sandy beach instead of in cold, dreary PA. Blood Orange Cooler | Join Us, Pull up a Chair
