Seville oranges are a little hard to find here in the US, but other fragrant oranges – like the blushing blood orange – are readily available, are currently in season, and happen to be the perfect hue for Galentine’s Day.


  • 2 blood oranges, one cut into quarters and the other into thin slices for garnish
  • 8 ounces gin
  • 1 liter sparkling water or seltzer (bonus points if it’s orange or blood orange flavored), chilled
