Can you even believe it? Valentine’s/Galentine’s Day is almost here so here it is, a Winter
Citrus Bourbon cocktail recipe just in time for the ‘big’ day.
I love all the love that’s happening. Like I mentioned last week – Valentine’s Day isn’t necessarily my favorite, but the positivity (and this cocktail) are quickly changing my mind. You know there’s little I love more than a tasty cocktail to celebrate the weekend, so here’s a new Valentine’s Day sip to get you in that weekend mood.
Meet the Winter Citrus Bourbon – the citrus really cuts the bourbon in a delicious way. So much so, that this cocktail might even convince your bourbon-hating friends to change their tune. I know I have a few friends who don’t necessarily enjoy bourbon, yet I know this Winter Citrus Bourbon would be a winner.
The Winter Citrus Bourbon is….you guessed it….super citrusy, but the sweet cara cara orange and blood orange offset the tart grapefruit. Plus, add that honey and you’ve got yourself a delectably balanced cocktail.
2 ounces bourbon
1 cara cara orange, juiced
1 blood orange, juiced
1 grapefruit, juiced
6 sprigs of thyme
1 tablespoon honey
1. Combine bourbon, 4 sprigs of thyme, honey, and juice from the citrus in a tumbler.
2. Shake vigorously for 20 seconds.
3. Pour in a glass and fill with ice.
4. Top with a slice of blood orange and a sprig of thyme.
*Makes 2 cocktails
