Blood Orange Mock-A-Rita with a Kick
| 1 min read
1 blood orange, quartered
1 jalapeño, sliced, seeds removed if desired
4 large limes, juiced
6 tbsp simple syrup
1 12-ounce can of lime-flavored sparkling water
1 tbsp coarse salt for the rim (optional)
If a salt rim is desired, rub some lime juice along the rim of the glasses and dip in coarse salt.
Divide jalapeño slices among 4 glasses and press down with a muddler or spoon. Leave the jalapeño slices in there if you desire a spicier drink.
Add the juice of a quarter wedge of blood orange and 1 lime.
Add 1½ tablespoons of simple syrup to each glass and stir well. Adjust sweetness if desired.
Top with lime sparkling water. Cheers!
