National Orange Blossom Day Date in the current year: June 27, 2022

National Orange Blossom Day Every day is a food holiday and June 27 is not an exception; it is observed as National Orange Blossom Day. Orange blossoms are not typically consumed as food, but they have found their place in various dishes.

Orange blossoms are used to decorate different treats and desserts worldwide. Any dish will have a slight citrus flavor if you add some orange blossoms, and drinks are especially delicious with orange blossoms. You can taste orange blossoms through orange honey. When bees pollinate orange trees, the resulting honey has got a citrus-y taste. This honey is very expensive, but a spoon of it will make your French toast really special.

However, National Orange Blossom Day honors not only small white flowers, but also the Orange Blossom cocktail. To make it, mix 1 ounce of apricot brandy, 1/2 ounce of Galliano, 1/2 ounce of orange juice, 1 ounce of vodka, and ice. Pour the cocktail in a highball glass and top with ginger ale. Decorate the drink with a slice of orange.

There is another recipe for the Orange Blossom cocktail. Mix 2 ounces of gin, 1 ounce of orange juice, 1 teaspoon of sugar and ice cubes in a shaker. Shake well and strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish the cocktail with an orange slice. Now you can celebrate the holiday.
