Have you ever seen blood oranges in your market, but had no idea what to do with them? They’re really beautiful once you cut them open, and the juice has the same color as, well, blood! I've partnered with @RedemptionWhiskey to create a spin on the Boulevardier, a perfect winter alternative to the Negroni.
> The Bloody Boulevardier <
- 1.5oz Redemption Rye Whiskey
- 1oz sweet vermouth
- 1oz Campari
- 3/4oz blood orange juice
Add all ingredients to a mixing glass with ice. Stir. Serve in a rocks glass over one large ice cube. Garnish with a slice of the orange. Stare at the intense color. Sip. Repeat.
It’s easy to see why the Boulevardier is considered a winter alternative to a Negroni, as the rye-for-gin substitute adds a warm depth to the slightly sweet, slightly bitter cocktail. Adding the deep red color and tartness that’s found in the sexy and mysterious blood orange lends another layer to what’s already a complex, classic cocktail.
