Ingredients

  • 1 cup (8 ounces) fresh blood orange juice (about 4 oranges)
  • 1/2 to 1 cup (4 to 8 ounces) bourbon
  • 2 cups (16 ounces) refrigerated lemonade
  • 2 tablespoons (1 ounce) refrigerated pomegranate juice
  • Angostura Bitters (optional
  • Blood Orange Slices (garnish)

Instructions

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.

Recipe Notes

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.
