If you’ve ever had an Old Fashioned, you’d know it usually comes garnished with an orange twist. So why not mix things up a bit?

Instead of using a regular orange, this recipe uses a blood orange and blood orange bitters to add a unique splash of color and a stronger punch of flavor.

  • 1 sugar cube
  • ½ slice blood orange
  • 2 dashes blood orange bitters
  • 1½ oz Hudson Baby Bourbon
  • 1 maraschino cherry
  • Soda

Muddle sugar cube with blood orange slice and bitters. Add bourbon. Toss in the cherry and top with splash of soda.
