I was going to write about how the weather has been cold and we need cocktails to deal with it, but… Who really needs an excuse to have a little bourbon? Not this kid.
Just enjoy a drink. You deserve it. Treat yo self.
I found this recipe on the blog A Cocktail Life.
You’ll need (makes 1 drink):
- 1 1/2 oz. bourbon (I’m a fan of Bulleit)
- 1 oz. blood orange juice
- 1/2 oz. lemon or lime juice
- 1/2 oz. simple syrup
- 1 dash Angostura bitters
- blood orange slices for garnish, optional
Combine all ingredients, minus the orange slices, in a cocktail shaker with ice. Stir until cold.
Strain into a glass with ice. Garnish with blood orange slices.
