Cara Cara Gin Cocktail

Cara Cara Gin Cocktail

Ive been very behind on my cocktail posts but rest assured I am consuming them. I really need to work on my photo compositions of my cocktails. But this orange is photogenic. Not to mention I have been on the Jack Daniels and Diet Cherry Dr. Pepper kick for sometime now. But spring is here and so the first cocktail of the night can incorporate some white liquors and fruit without me mailing in my man card.

I must be late to the party, but I confess that I have never heard of a Cara Cara Orange before. I have heard of a blood orange but never a Cara Cara. Look at these beauties!

So I whipped up a little Gin concoction using these orange beauties. As I mentioned, my cocktail photo stink but what I did was used an orange, gin, sliced cucumber and Dr. Brown’s Cel-Rey Soda. I am really liking cucumber in my drinks because they freshen it up. If Gin isn’t your thing, Vodka would work.

2 Drinks
1 Dr. Brown’s Cel-Rey Soda
4 oz of Gin (we get down)
2 Cara Cara Oranges (juiced)
sliced cucumber

Combine and stir.
