From other users
  • Used Buffalo Trace, Fee's Rhubarb bitters and freshly squeezed Blood Oranges. Found it to taste medicinal. Buffalo Trace was wasted on this one. Perhaps will try less Aperol and a single dash of bitters before we abandon i — ☆☆
  • No brainer - you can't go wrong with fresh blood orange juice. I upped the bourbon a little and made it a bit less juicy. — ☆☆☆☆
