It’s 5-O’Clock Somewhere: The Satsuma Blossom

February 21, 2014

After our recent trip to Vietnam, we’ve found our trusty standby cocktails are leaving something to be desired. Give us excitement, give us adventuregive us the happiest of hours on the most beautiful of beaches! Cue the Satsuma Blossom. This gin-spiked delight gets a sweet-tart kick thanks to the satsuma, a variety of mandarin orange that’s particularly suited to triggering tropical daydreams. Did somebody say cocktail umbrella? Don’t mind if we do.
