Traditionally drinks made with tonic are nice, light, and refreshing, but we like to twist the rules a bit and add a bit more flavor, especially when fresh fruit is in season.
This version adds the sweetness from the blood oranges along with the mellow citrus tones of tangerines, the piney hint of thyme, and our red-fruit forward Baton Brandy to create a perfect cocktail!
So while tangerines and blood oranges are in season, we use them! And we use them a lot, so don't miss the opportunity to create this cocktail at home, for a delicious spin on a classic!
