Blood Orange & Bourbon Cocktail ((recipe))

We've been having such amazing warm & sunny weekends - perfect for a good cocktail on the back porch. I had purchased a ton of blood oranges at Whole Foods and Knox wasn't a fan, so I decided to juice them all and make this delicious cocktail. 

2 oz of bourbon
1/2 cup blood orange juice
orange slices for garnish
2-3 drops of angostura bitters
ginger ale or club soda

1. Squeeze multiple blood oranges to get about a half cup. 
2. Place juice, bitters, and bourbon in a shaker with ice.
3. Shake and pour into glass, garnished with an orange. Serve over ice if desired.
4. Enjoy!
