Blood Orange Old Fashioned

This post has been sponsored by Stirrings®. All thoughts and opinions are my own. 

Ease seems to be the name of the game as of late. 

If 2020 has taught me one thing, it’s been that we gotta work smarter, not harder, and focus on what’s important and not get distracted by evvvverything that’s thrown our way. I’ll be the first to admit that I’m one of the more easily distracted folks out there, but the last few months have really helped me par down what’s essential and important for me. 

Don’t get me wrong. I’m not complaining, at all. We’ve got enough on our plates lately without having to over complicate the simple things in life – like our cocktails. 

Which is why I knew exactly what to do with my delivery of Stirrings® Blood Orange Bitters and Stirrings® Simple Syrup. Old Fashioned’s are always a pretty simple cocktail, but further simplifying a step or two never hurt anyone, right? 

Plus the addition of the Stirrings Blood Orange Bitters takes the flavor profile up a notch, and is an easy way to elevate your favorite Old Fashioned recipe without any additional leg work. Not to mention the bitters help elevate the classic Old Fashioned garnish – an orange peel.
