Sicilian Summer

Tonight, we got a bit experimental with our cocktails and put this delicious sipper together:
blood orange copy
Ingredients:

  •  2 ounces bourbon
  • 1 once Solerno blood orange liqueur
  • One orange peel (about one inch plus more for garnish)
  • Splash of club soda
  • Three dashes of orange bitters (bitterment orange citrate is my preference)

Instructions:

  1. Put the booze in a cocktail shaker.
  2. Drop in the orange peel and muddle for a few minutes.
  3. Add the bitters.
  4. Add ice and shake liberally.
  5. Put in a chilled glass (I like a coupe).
  6. Garnish with an orange twist.
  7. Add a splash of soda.
  8. Drink.
