I love the flavor of ginger, and was excited to pair it with the juice of the blood oranges I had picked up at the store. I did find this cocktail a little disappointing - but I think all it needed was a touch of sweet - some agave syrup swirled in would have made all the difference - I'm looking forward to happy hour already!
