This Blood Orange Screwdriver Cocktail recipe makes the most out of bright red winter citrus! This super-simple base recipe includes a nonalcoholic option to please everyone at your next brunch. 


Units Scale
  • 1 oz vodka (or ginger beer/ginger kombucha for non-alcoholic)
  • 1/3 cup blood orange juice (from about two oranges), plus orange wedge for garnishing
  • 1 tsp maple syrup
  • 1 TBS grated fresh ginger, optional
  • 1 spring mint, optional
  • Sparkling water, to top


  1. Add one cup of ice to a cocktail shaker or large, sealable jar. Next add vodka (or ginger beer/ginger kombucha), blood orange juice, maple syrup, ginger (if using), and mint (if using).
  2. Seal the container and shake vigorously for about 20 seconds, until your hand gets pretty cold.
  3. Strain into your glass of choice (I like a coupe or flute), and top with a splash of sparkling water. Garnish with a thin orange wedge.


To make a blood orange screwdriver punch that serves 6 people: Add 6 oz of vodka to a large pitcher.Top with 2 cups of blood orange juice. Add 2 TBS maple syrup. Stir and portion across 6 ice-filled glasses, topping with sparkling water just before serving. Garnish with mint and orange wedges.
