My all time favorite cocktail is the old fashioned . It’s the very first cocktail recipe I shared on my blog. Although it’s a simple drink, when prepared correctly it’s magical.
There’s something about the play of orange and bourbon that just works together. During the holidays, I created cranberry orange bourbon concoction. It was such a hit with friends, that I figured a Valentine’s Day version would be very much welcomed. Taking advantage of the citrus season, I knew blood oranges would provide the perfect * je ne sais quoi* .
