Unlike the rose petals adorning this cocktail, there is nothing delicate related to this drink. Neither the bourbon or the blood orange are ready to take a back seat to the other, so it’s the lemon and simple syrup which coerce them to play nice. Kudos to Gastronomblog for publishing this recipe in early 2015.
2 oz Bulleit Bourbon
1 1/2 oz Freshly Squeezed Blood Orange Juice
1/4 oz Freshly Squeezed Lemon Juice
1 oz Simple Syrup
2 dashes Angostura Bitters
Combine all ingredients into a cocktail shaker and fill with ice.
Drain into a chilled rocks or medium sized cocktail glass without ice cubes (if you prefer, a single large cube will work too).
