About this Cocktail

For Christmas Eve, 2018 I created a special drink that had lots of moving parts, but worked really well. I made candied blood orange peels for garnish, as well as a simple syrup from sweet orange tea especially for this. Then used a smoker box to add hint of cherry wood and the tea mix over the whole thing.

Ingredients:
  • 1 oz bourbon (high west American prairie)
  • .75 oz rye (high west double rye)
  • .75 oz China China Amer
  • .5 oz fresh blood orange juice
  • .5 oz orange tea simple syrup
  • .25 oz mint simple syrup
  • Dash angostura orange bitters
  • Dash fee brothers orange bitters
Preparation:

Combine ingredients, shake well over ice. Double strain into cocktail coupe. Smoke for 45-60 seconds. Garnish with candied blood orange peel. (Makes about a 4oz drink, accounting for dilution).
