Guys, I feel like I say this all the time but I think I really mean it this time… this might just be my favorite drink that I’ve posted to date.

This cocktail has the perfect balance of sweet and tart that makes for a great rift on the classic bourbon sour cocktail.

I found this cocktail to be my go-to this winter whenever I had leftover blood oranges in the fridge from the other blood orange cocktails that I’ve made.

Blood Orange Bourbon Sour

Start by juicing from fresh blood oranges to bet about 1 oz of juice. If you have really ripe blood oranges, it would only take about 1/2 or 1 full orange.

Alternatively, if you cannot find actual blood oranges in your grocery store, they do sell a pre-made blood orange juice in the refrigerated juice section. Unfortunately, it’s also still seasonal from what I can tell.

Moving on…

Blood Orange Bourbon Sour

Take your blood orange juice, bourbon, simple syrup, and lemon juice and add them to a cocktail shaker. Fill it about 1/2 way with ice, then cover and shake for 30 seconds to chill and combine.

Double strain into a rocks glass with one large ice cube and garnish with a maraschino cherry and slice of blood orange if you have one.

Serve immediately and enjoy!

Like I said, this might just be my new favorite to date. The sweet and tart are perfectly balanced and it’s a great sipper for whenever there are blood oranges in season.
