Blood Orange Bourbon Fizz

It’s New Years Eve!!! Wow, cannot believe 2020 is coming to an end. THANK GOODNESS! Even though this year was a whole lot extra, I can’t say it didn’t have its bright moments. I became an aunt to TWO of the sweetest little boys, I challenged myself both professionally and personally and cooked a whole lot of delicious food (thanks to my new work from home gig). If you are looking for a last minute easy and TASTY cocktail to ring in the New Year, you should make this Blood Orange Bourbon Fizz! It’s sweet and tangy and simply delicious! Only a few ingredients, some tasty bourbon, a shaker and your one step closer to this perfect cocktail!


Ingredients

Serves 2!

  • 3 oz Bourbon (I used Woodford Reserve)
  • Bitters
  • 2 blood oranges, juiced
  • Handful of blueberries
  • ice
  • 6 oz Champagne

Instructions

Add blood orange juice to a shaker with blueberries and a handful of ice. Add 1 oz of Bourbon to the shaker with a splash of bitters (like 3-4 shakes). Shake Shake Shake for 30-60 seconds! Shaking helps to melt a little bit of the ice which helps bring this entire drink together.
Add 1 oz of Bourbon to each of your classes with two ice cubes each. Strain blood orange mixture evenly between the two glasses. Top with Champagne and garnish with a slice of blood orange, a few blueberries and a blood orange twist (take a peeler and peel some of the blood orange skin, twist and add to your glass).

Now drink and repeat a few times while you ring in the New Year!

2021 we are SO ready for you!
