Blood Orange Elderflower Cocktail

How cool are these glasses? Dave's Aunt Vicki gifted them to us, the map is of Akron, Ohio where we first met. They are from a company called the Uncommon Green and there are so many different map/glass options to choose from. Our set contained two pint glasses and two stemless wine glasses. They're just so fun and a cool reminder of where we met. This cocktail was initially made with gin, but I've always preferred vodka. I love St. Germain (elderflower liquor) and blood oranges.

Dave and I both thought that this ended up being pretty tasty, all of the ingredients went together really well. It was light and refreshing in a way that was appropriate for winter, it wasn't something that had me reminiscing for summer, but was a nice stand alone winter cocktail.

Adapted from the Little Epicurean.

-1 ounce vodka
-3/4 ounces St. Germain (elderflower liqueur)
-1/2 ounces lime juice
-2 1/2 ounces ginger beer
-1 ounce blood orange juice (equivalent of 1 blood orange)

In the serving glass, combine the vodka, St. Germain, and ice. Combine the lime juice, blood orange juice, and ginger beer -- pour into the cocktail glass. Garnish with blood orange slices and serve immediately.
