Happy New Year, everyone! One of my goals for 2018 is to share more cocktail recipes with you here on the blog. It'll be a combination of reliable classics as well as seasonal favorites so you'll be well prepared for every occasion.
Before we get started, let's touch on the word 'Fix.' I'm referring here to a method of preparation or style of cocktail. The 'Fix' is a simple cocktail preparation traditionally calling for a base spirit, with lemon juice and sugar, served over crushed ice. Simplicity at its best.
While nearly perfect as a three ingredient classic, seasonal fruits and herbs can be added for extra appeal. For this traditional rum fix, I muddled in a few blood orange wedges for an added punch of seasonal citrus juice and oil.
BLOOD ORANGE FIX
- 2 blood orange wedges
- 3/4 lemon juice
- 3/4 simple syrup
- 2 oz aged rum
Combine all ingredients in a mixing tin. Muddle, add ice, shake, and strain into a chilled double rocks glass. Mound with crushed ice and garnish with a blood orange wedge and straw.
