In the Kitchen: Evergreen Tangerine Inspired Cocktails

The combination of pine and citrus is classic. Its aroma brings instant warmth, comfort, and distinct character to any room it permeates. An easy way to have the rooms of your home smelling like this delicious blend is with our Evergreen Tangerine Room + Body Spray, but if you feel like getting crafty in the kitchen instead, these refreshing and festive cocktail recipes can lend a hand.

Rosemary Citrus Gin + Tonic

This drink makes use of winter citrus fruits and rosemary not just for garnish, but to masterfully compliment the flavor of gin. The rosemary adds a not-quite-pine yet herbal hint of flavor. The Meyer lemons used in this recipe are sweeter than regular lemons, and their rind carries a highly fragrant and spicy aroma that combines beautifully in this cocktail.

Ingredients:

1 sprig of fresh rosemary
1 clementine
½ Meyer lemon (juiced)
2 ounces of Tropicana tangerine lemonade (or tangerine juice)
2 ounces gin
3 ounces tonic water
Clementine and lemon slices, additional rosemary sprigs for garnish (optional)

Directions:

  1. In a cocktail shaker, muddle half of your clementine with a large sprig of rosemary.
  2. Add the juice from half a Meyer lemon, gin, and some ice.
  3. Shake vigorously and strain into a glass.
  4. Top with tangerine juice/tangerine lemonade and tonic.
  5. Garnish the glass with slices of clementine and/or lemon and add a sprig of rosemary as a cocktail stirrer.
