Cocktail Recipe: Sanguine Sunshine

I went to my friend Rina’s house on Thursday, planning on just helping her out with some stuff and then going out to dinner, but when I walked in, she asked if I’d make her a drink. Now, of COURSE I will make her a drink, all the time, as she’s one of my favorite cocktail guinea pigs, but I had all these neat little ingredients I had wanted to show off and I hadn’t brought any of them over. So I worked with what she had in the house. Which is not an unimpressive collection.

Her husband, Brendan, recently acquired a full set of syrups from the new syrup company, Royal Rose, which is in nearby Brooklyn. I had been itching to try them. They also had a bottle of Solerno Blood Orange Liqueur, which I ‘d heard good things about, but never had, and Cocktail Kingdom’s Wormwood Bitters. (Note: Cocktail Kingdom is one of my favorite places to buy bitters. They have lots of awesome small batch stuff that I haven’t found anywhere else).

We tried a little of the Solerno neat, and it was very, very sweet, sweeter than I expected. It tasted kind of like a melted popsicle, but with more depth to it. I’m not so sure I got ‘blood orange’ so much as a brighter orange-tangeriney flavor.

Here’s what I ended up making:
