Frocktails: Color Me Bold

Pregnancy really threw a wrench into pairing cocktails with dresses of the non-maternity variety, so after a yearlong hiatus, I'm happy that frocktails is back! First up, a bold red dress and an equally vibrant blood orange cocktail.

For the drink, I took the classic French 75 and incorporated blood orange juice. It brings a little extra sweetness and a whole lot of color to the cocktail.

The fiery color of this dress from ASOS is eye-catching enough, but with the structured silhouette and sassy slit, you've got a real statement-maker. Cheers!

Blood Orange French 75

1 1/2 ounces gin
1/2 ounce lemon juice
1 1/2 ounces blood orange juice
2 1/2 ounces chilled Brut Champagne

Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add gin, lemon juice and blood orange juice and shake until chilled. Strain and pour into a champagne flute or coupe and top with champagne. Garnish with a twist of orange.

Dress found here. See past frocktail posts.
