Cocktail Friday - Blood Orange Mule

Blood oranges are so delicious in Winter and this variation on our favourite classic Moscow mule – the blood orange mule – combines a bitter citrus hit with the sweetness of the traditional drink.

We added big doses of blood orange to this cocktail – using a blood orange liqueur and soda which are easy to have on hand if you struggle to find blood oranges nearby – and the flavour packed a punch. So consider this your go to drink for Winter weddings, because it certainly makes our list!


  • 15 ml lime juice
  • 1 fresh lime wedge
  • 1 fresh blood orange wedge
  • 40ml vodka
  • 10ml Solerno Blood Orange Liqueur
  • 3 bruised mint leaves
  • 30ml blood orange soda
  • Ice
  • Ginger beer
  • Rosemary (optional)


In your cocktail shaker, combine the lime juice with the citrus wedges, vodka, Solerno Blood Orange Liqueur and mint leaves. Muddle together so the juices combine and strain into your copper Moscow mule cup over plenty of ice.

Pour in the blood orange soda and top with ginger beer. Stir.

Garnish with blood orange slices, or for a herbal twist – try rosemary!
