A good old fashioned is just good for the soul. I like to play with old fashioned cocktails because it gives me a chance to try different bourbons and add in other flavors to the mix. I love oranges so when I found this blood orange liqueur online I knew I had to have it. It's a perfect flavorful choice for summer cocktails. I totally foresee me using this liqueur in a lot of different ways in the future and it definitely is a mainstay on my bar.
