Every day I get closer to my move to Portland, I am overcome with excitement and nervousness. Today was my last day of work, and I’m officially without a job.
I feel like I’ve left a family at work, and I can honestly say they are the best people I’ve worked with. Tonight has become one of my favorite nights ever.
Of course I have to make a fucking cocktail for it.
The Pick Up and Go
1 ounce of blood orange infused bourbon (bourbon infused with orange peel for 3-5 days)
1/2 cup of blood orange juice
1 tablespoon of agave nectar or simple syrup
topped up with soda water
garnish with a slice of a blood orange
Blood oranges are great for many, many reasons. First of all, they are gorgeous and always make perfect garnishes. Secondly, the strong citrusy scent and flavor takes over any strong (or cheap) bourbon. This is definitely a girly drink. Even my mother couldn’t taste much of the alcohol.
Either way though, it’s strong and if you need more than one of these to get tipsy, lay off the poison.
