Munchy Monday: Blood Orange Old Fashioned

Last weekend I was lucky enough to go on a fabulous girls weekend away to the mountains with my best friend Gabby and her friend Kristen. We had a great couple of days relaxing, eating amazing food, watching Red Box movies and spending quality time with each other. We also spent Saturday night playing Banana Grams, eating flat-bread pizza and drinking a few cocktails like this little beauty.

This attractive little concoction is a take on a classic Old Fashioned and boy, is this an update! I am not usually someone who likes to drink bourbon, but I drank two of these without any complaint! With this being peak season for blood oranges, I suggest you run on down to your local market and pick a few up. You're not going to want to miss this delightful beverage!
