Is your regular orange juice looking and tasting just a little too bland? Maybe you’re looking for a new early morning cocktail to drink besides a Screwdriver or a Bloody Mary? Do you want a drink that just sounds kinda badass? If you answer yes to any of these questions, then take a look at the recipe for a Blood Orange Bourbon Sunrise.
I found this drink recipe while searching online and immediately wanted to try it. Overall, I found it to be pretty refreshing. The distinct flavor of the blood orange provides a light, fruity flavor that mixes well with the honey and bourbon. It’s very simple to make, and could be made into larger batches to share with more people. Consider trying out this cocktail the next time you have a morning tailgate on the calendar, I have a feeling you won’t be disappointed!
Ingredients (Serving Size = 2)
8 oz. of blood orange juice
3 oz. of bourbon
2 tsp. of honey
Slice of orange to garnish
