  • 2 ounces vodka you can use plain or citrus-flavored
  • 1/2 ounce triple sec or any other orange liqueur
  • 1 ounce fresh blood orange juice
  • 1/2 ounce fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 ounce simple syrup adjust based on your sweetness preference
  • Blood orange slices for garnish
  • Sugar for rimming the glass


Prepare the Glass:

  • Rim a martini glass with lemon juice and then dip it into sugar to coat the rim thoroughly. Set aside.

Mix the Cocktail:

  • In a shaker, combine vodka, triple sec, blood orange juice, lemon juice, and simple syrup.
  • Fill the shaker with ice, covering the liquid.


  • Shake vigorously for about 15 seconds. The shaking not only chills the drink but also dilutes it slightly, which is essential for smoothing out the flavors.

Strain and Serve:

  • Strain the mixture into the prepared martini glass to avoid ice shards in your drink.
  • Garnish with a slice of blood orange on the rim or float a thin wheel inside the drink.
