Among them is the Orange Blossom Special, made with blood oranges and vodka and named for a Johnny Cash LP.


2 ounces premium citrus vodka

Juice from one blood orange

Juice from ½ lemon

1 drop orange blossom water

1/2 ounce simple syrup

2 dashes Angostura bitters

Splash of soda water


Simply pour all the ingredients save the soda water over ice in a shaker. Shake vigorously and strain into a rocks glass filled with ice. Top with the soda water, garnish with a large orange twist and savour the glow.
