Blood Orange Bourbon Sour

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.
