The last few weeks at work have been surprisingly rough.  It’s not that I’m having problems with behaviors because for the first time in years I don’t have any students with behavior problems.  No, my problem this year is that I just can’t get anything done.  I feel like I’m so far behind and it’s really stressful.

I have to plan for 5 groups a day, I have a lot of paper work to get finished, and I just can’t keep up.  I’ve actually been bringing home some of my work and doing it which I haven’t had to do in the past.   All that to say at the end of the day sometimes I like to have a cocktail and relax.

Before J was born I made a lot of cocktails.  It wasn’t unusual for me to make one or two different cocktails during a weekend to try and find one that I really liked.   I haven’t done that in at least a year but since I received a fun box of Freaky Fruits from Melissa’s Produce I knew I wanted to make at least one cocktail with these fruits.

EVerything you need to make a Blood Orange Mule

After going through the box I picked out a few passion fruit and a blood orange.  I thought the tart flavor of the passion fruit would work well with the sweet blood orange and they both have a tropical feel so it was perfect.  I just needed to figure out what type of cocktail to make.

After searching my mixer options I decided on a Blood Orange Passion Fruit Mule.  I’ve been loving mules for the last few years and since I had ginger beer in the refrigerator I thought it would be great with these fruits.   I whipped up a quick simple syrup and mixed it with the pulp and seeds from the passion fruit, the juice from the blood orange, and some fresh lime juice.  I just happened to have some blood orange vodka as well but orange vodka would work as well.

Blood Orange Passion Fruit Mules are a happy hour favorite!

I mixed it all together and divided it into two glasses filled with ice then topped it off with the ginger beer.  The color of this cocktail is really pretty.  It’s a pinkish orange color and has the passion fruit seeds floating in it.  The taste is amazing!  It’s definitely tropical but it has a bit of sweetness and a bit of tartness mixed with the flavor from the ginger beer.  This is an awesome cocktail that’s basically perfect any time of year!
