Blood Orange Sour

by James Stevenson

I finally found some blood oranges last week so I had to make some cocktails with them and didn’t want to use them up by juicing them so after a few trials I ended up using the Monin Blood Orange syrup in their place and saved the beautiful fruit as a garnish. This cocktail started as a classic whiskey sour but I found that the blood orange worked better with a white rum and the orange bitters really help to just top off the flavors.
