What’s better than an Old Fashioned? Plenty of cocktail consumers would say not much, if anything at all. I myself am included in that bunch as I am certainly of the opinion that there are few things better in life than a good Old Fashioned at the end of the day.

I do tend to get antsy, so I like to switch the drink up a bit every few weeks in order to stay interesting and also appeal to the changing seasons. As blood oranges are currently in season, I figured it would be the perfect ingredient for January Old Fashioneds.

What you’ll need:
2 oz whiskey
1 oz fresh-squeezed blood orange juice
Club soda
Angostura bitters
Blood orange wedge

In a rocks glass, combine the whiskey and blood orange juice. Mix and add a dash of bitters and a splash of club soda. Mix again and garnish with the blood orange wedge to serve.
