The Perfect Winter Cocktail: Spiced Orange and Rosemary Bourbon
January 30, 2016
My seasonal cocktail favorites are ever changing. Winter usually means snuggling on the couch with a great red wine in hand but I'm thinking that's about to change. This Spiced Orange + Rosemary Bourbon from Waiting on Martha is calling my name and probably yours too! Just imagine this spicy sip paired with a Monday night Bachelor viewing. Oh yeah, that's totally happening.
From Waiting on Martha... Vibrant and full-bodied, this Spiced Orange Bourbon Cocktail packs the punch I've come to appreciate and the combination of citrus spiced orange and rosemary has quickly become one of my favorite, yet simple, flavor infusions. This time of year it's like comfort in a glass!
To serve, I simply pour over round ice molds, add a dash of my spiced orange syrup, a fresh orange peel, a rosemary sprig and cheers! It's a dangerously easy drink to down (don't say I didn't warn you). But for the record, I think it's completely reasonable to request that you make yours a double!
