Blood Orange Old Fashioned


Blood Orange Syrup:

2 cups Wholesome Organic Fair Trade Raw & Unfiltered Honey

1 cup water

2 cinnamon sticks

1/2 tsp cardamom

1 blood orange, sliced into rounds


2 oz bourbon

1 oz lemon juice

1 oz orange juice

2 oz blood orange simple syrup

Several dashes orange bitters


Prepare simple syrup by bringing honey, water, cinnamon and cardamom to a boil in a wide, shallow saucepan over medium-high heat. Reduce to a simmer and add orange slices.

Simmer for 45 minutes, flipping orange slices occasionally.

Remove orange slices using a fork, and allow to cool completely on a wire rack (ideally 24 hours). Reserve simple syrup.

In cocktail shaker with ice, combine all ingredients and stir. Allow to chill for several minutes before straining into a glass to serve.

Garnish with candied orange slice.
