Bourbon & Blood

Ingredients

This cocktail (aka Blood Orange Cocktail), was created by Gian Saetti, a bartender at the Ritz-Carlton Kapalua’s Alaloa Lounge in Maui. The name comes from the use of a beautiful blood orange that has a deep red juice that brings to mind the color of blood – but sweeter. The Bourbon and Blood is inspired by the Manhattan and, even, the Boulevardier.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 oz Bourbon
  • 1 oz Blood Orange Liqueur (Solerno)
  • 1 oz Sweet Vermouth
  • 1–2 dashes orange Bitters
  • 6 small leaves tarragon
  • Garnish: Orange Peel

PREPARATION

Inspiration comes from the Spruce Eats! Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake briskly 15 times. Double strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with the zest of a fresh orange swath before lightly placing it into the cocktail.
