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.
