This super-simple blood orange syrup recipe is a great way to get started. Just add liquor and a healthy dose of bubbly and you’re fully set to celebrate (or completely ignore) the day in question.

Directions

Directions 1. Make the syrup: In a medium saucepan, bring the blood orange juice to a boil. Simmer the juice until it has reduced to about 1 cup, 5 to 6 minutes. 2. Add the sugar and return the mixture to a boil, stirring gently to dissolve the sugar. When the sugar is fully dissolved, remove the saucepan from the heat. Stir in the mint. Cool to room temperature. 3. Make the cocktail: In a cocktail shaker filled with ice, shake the gin with the syrup. Strain into a glass and finish with a healthy splash of prosecco. Store leftover syrup in the refrigerator for up to two weeks. Read more: Blood Orange-Mint Syrup | Recipes - PureWow Sign Up For PureWow's Daily Email
