It’s that good

Just found this great tailgating recipe in Veranda magazine by Danielle Rollins.  Maybe it’s

my impending class reunion, or my daughter’s parents weekend, or The Packers playing on

Sunday, or the fact that I just did the Bourbon Tour in Kentucky, this recipe is worth adding to

your own cookbook collection.  I’ve got Bourbon on my mind.

Blood Orange Old Fashioned Cocktails

For each cocktail, soak two sugar cubes ( preferably brown ) with a tablespoon of blood

orange bitters in a 12-ounce highball glass.  You can do this ahead of time so the sugar

completely dissolves.  When you’re ready to serve the drinks, fill each glass with ice and

add a half cup of freshly squeezed blood orange juice, 2 ounces bourbon ( I like

Woodford Reserve ) and a splash of soda.  Garnish with a thinly sliced blood orange

wheel.  So pretty too!

“Happiness isn’t being cheerful all the time.” says John Sharp a psychiatrist at Harvard 

Medical School, “Happiness is being interested in things – finding out more about 

something, learning how to appreciate something better, incorporating something new

that fits in with what you already have.” In Whole Living magazine
