Blood Orange Rosemary Old Fashion

Updated: Dec 21, 2023

Are you ready to try a classic cocktail with a refreshing twist? Introducing the Blood Orange Rosemary Old Fashioned - a sophisticated drink that is perfect for sipping on a summer night. This single serving cocktail is a combination of the flavors of tart blood oranges and the aromatic scent of rosemary, which will tantalize your taste buds.

As someone who is usually drawn to lighter alcohol, I was hesitant to try this cocktail at first. But lately, I've been expanding my bartending skills and experimenting with different alcohols and liqueurs. The old fashioned is one of America's most aged cocktails, and for this recipe, I'm using Jim Beam's Bourbon which balances the bitterness and sweetness of an old fashion.

What makes this cocktail stand out is the addition of blood oranges and rosemary. These two ingredients complement each other perfectly and add a unique and refreshing twist to the classic old fashioned. The blood oranges provide a tart and tangy flavor, while the rosemary adds an aromatic and herbaceous note.

This Blood Orange Rosemary Old Fashioned also has a hint of smokiness from the Bourbon, which makes it a perfect drink to enjoy on a summer night. So why not say yes to Bourbon and give this amazing cocktail a try?

2 oz bourbon

Three dashes of Angostura bitters

Juice of one blood orange or use Blood Orange Juice

blood orange wedge
