Levantine Kissed Blood Orange Screwdriver Recipe


Today was a long hot Saturday afternoon when I craved a sundowner to sip around the pool. 

In a quandary, not sure what my palate desired, prosecco jumped to mind, but I still fancied something different. AND VOILA! I had a box of Turkish blood oranges, which I buy whenever possible as they bring sweet memories of my belated father in law. He was the best in law a woman could ever wish for. So I decided to have a toast in his memory with a blood orange screwdriver. 

I love infusing drinks or foods with a Levant touch, so what better than a blood orange screwdriver slush with a kiss of orange blossom topped with pomegranate seeds. 






  • 180 milliliters vodka 
  • 650 milliliters blood orange juice 
  • 20 ice cubes 
  • 1 tablespoon orange blossom water 
  • Handful of pomegranate seeds 



  • Place the vodka, orange juice, ice cubes and orange blossom water in a powerful blender and blend until it reached a slush consistency. If it is still runny add more ice cubes and blend. 
  • Pour amongst 4 martini glasses or anything of your choice, sprinkle some pomegranate seeds and sip with a smoothie straw.
