Refreshing Gin Cocktail

We needed a drink to beat the heat and this one is a winner. Sadly, after visiting three stores, I could not find blood oranges and settled on valencia oranges. This made me miss my NY Wegmans. However this minor set back really only affected the color. While the vibrant red hue of the blood orange would have been amazing, the drink still tasted perfect and quenched our thirst.
