Orange Blossom Special

6 Aug

This cocktail takes the name of a favorite bluegrass tune, and goes down just as sweet…(if you like the sound of a banjo that is)

1.5 oz Bols Genever
3/4 oz Lillet
3/4 oz Orange Juice
1/4 oz Orange Liquer (Citronge)
1 dash homemade orange bitters
3 drop orange blossom water

Shake with ice. Strain.

Malty and orange nose. Bitter notes from orange blossom water, Lillet, and of course, bitters. Little liqueur needed, as sweetness from other ingredients balanced out in a dangerously smooth cocktail
