This refreshing sip is made by mixing a flavorful blood orange simple syrup with canned LaCroix sparkling water. You could actually make your soda right in the can--simply pop the top, take a swig, pour in a bit of your blood orange base, give the can a swirl, and enjoy. And for a perfect happy hour upgrade, add a little campari into the equation. 

How to Make It

Step 1

Zest and juice 4 of the 5 oranges. Cut the remaining 1 orange into thin rounds; slice the rounds in half and set aside (for garnish). 

Step 2

 Combine the orange zest, juice, sugar, and water in a small saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil. Remove pan from heat and let stand for 10 minutes.

Step 3

 Strain orange mixture. Stir in both bitters; cover and chill for about 20 minutes.

Step 4

 Combine ¾ cup of LaCroix with 2 tablespoons of blood orange mixture, or to taste; pour over ice and garnish with orange slices.
