One of the best things about winter is the abundance of fantastic citrus that fills the stores. The bright fresh fruits bring a much-needed burst of sunny warmth to the chill of winter! Plus, they make for some wonderful ingredients that can be used to make delicious cocktails.
One of our favorites might just be the most beautiful citrus, the blood orange. It’s a sweet orange with a deep crimson color fruit that brings to mind the color of blood. We elevate this cocktail with our red fruit-forward Baton Brandy, the depth of sweet vermouth, and to balance it our a bit of bitterness from Campari!
