cup (8 ounces) fresh blood orange juice (about 4 oranges)
to 1 cup (4 to 8 ounces) bourbon
cups (16 ounces) refrigerated lemonade
tablespoons (1 ounce) refrigerated pomegranate juice
Angostura Bitters (optional
Blood Orange Slices (garnish)
Combine the first 4 ingredients in an ice-filled pitcher. Pour into ice-filled rocks glasses. Top off each with a dash of bitters, if desired. Garnish, if desired.
Blood oranges differ from their thick-skinned cousins, navel oranges, because they are less acidic in taste and have a richer, berry-like flavor. When pressed, blood oranges yield a tangy-sweet juice that pairs well with bourbon.
