A twist on the typical Gin & Tonic, incorporating seasonal fruits and thyme. Blood orange and tangerine enhance this bright and lively cocktail, perfect for a dinner party or a romantic dinner.



  • 12 sprigs of fresh thyme, more for garnish
  • 11/2 oz gin
  • 1/2 blood orange, plus slice for garnish (substitute with a naval orange)
  • 22 1/2 oz tangerine juice (or squeeze a tangerine or clementine)
  • 1 small bottle tonic water (I like FeverTree or QDrinks)
  • Ice


  1. In a highball glass, place a couple of sprigs of thyme and muddle (crush) the thyme against the bottom of the glass.
  2. If desired, remove the thyme before proceeding.
  3. Measure and pour gin into glass.
  4. Fill glass with ice.
  5. Squeeze 1/2 of blood orange over ice.
  6. Pour in tangerine juice.
  7. Fill up glass with tonic water.
  8. Garnish with slice of blood orange and sprig of thyme.


Note | Easily convert this into a “Mocktail” by omitting the gin, increasing the blood orange to a full orange and increasing the tangerine juice as desired and tonic water.
