January is the beginning of a short season for Blood Oranges. With a Dark-Crimson flesh, a rind with a bright red blush and subtle notes of raspberry, it makes a great addition to many cocktails. The distinct flavor blends well as both the sweet and sour component of a cocktail recipe. This take on a whiskey cocktail can be enjoyed whenever Blood Oranges are in season.

11/2 oz Ottis Webber Wheat Whiskey
1 oz Cointreau
1 oz Fresh Blood Orange Juice
Blood Orange Wheel for Garnish

Add all ingredients to a shaker tin. Fill with ice & shake until tin is cold to touch. Double strain into a martini glass. Garnish with Blood Orange Wheel.
