Orange Blossom Cocktail

Prep Time10 mins
Cook Time30 mins
Total Time40 mins
Servings: 2 cocktails


  • 4 oz. Seville orange juice I used 2 oranges to get this much juice
  • 2 oz. Cointreau
  • 2 oz. good quality vodka
  • 1 oz. Infused Simple Syrup
  • Infused Simple Syrup
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ½ cup water
  • zest from 1 Seville orange


  • Using a vegetable peeler, remove the peel from one of the Seville oranges. Trim off any of the white pith. In small saucepan, combine the sugar and the water and the orange peel. Bring mixture to simmer over medium heat and stir until the sugar completely dissolves. Take off the heat and allow the orange peel to infuse the syrup for ½ hour. Remove the orange peel and transfer the syrup to a small bottle or jar and refrigerate. You will have more simple syrup than you need for the cocktails! The syrup is wonderful drizzled over a salad of sliced citrus!
  • Juice the Seville oranges and set aside. Fill a large cocktail shaker with ice and add the orange juice, Cointreau, vodka and infused simple syrup. Stir until thoroughly combined and mixture is cold. Strain into 2 cocktail glasses. Garnish with additional orange peel if desired.
