Bourbon and Blood Orange Smash

So I’m not a big beer drinker and I don’t think sipping on a super fruity cocktail is going to fly for the big game this Sunday, so I wanted to whip up something that is football friendly yet tastes yummy enough for the ladies… here we go!

Bourbon and Orange Smash

Serves 4 – Adapted from Real Simple

  • Zest of 1 orange, peeled into strips

  • 6 oz bourbon
  1. In a large pitcher, muddle orange zest, sugar and bitters with a wooden spoon.
  2. Add orange juice, club soda and bourbon.
  3. Stir and serve!

* Feel free to make the drink up to 6 hours in advance – just withhold the club soda, and add right before serving!
