Blood Orange Old Fashioned

From Thirteenth Colony

The Old Fashioned is an icon, but even an icon could use a facelift. This modern take on an old friend adds a hint of citrus in the form of Blood Oranges. Available only in the winter months, the sweet and slightly tart Blood Orange with its beautiful aroma of fresh citrus will have you walking on the beach in no time.

Ingredients

  • 2 ounces Thirteenth Colony Southern Rye Whiskey or Southern Bourbon Whiskey
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • Few dashes bitters
  • 1 blood orange, half for the juice and the other half cut into wedges for serving
  • 2-3 good maraschino cherries
  • Ice Cubes for serving
Directions

In a whiskey glass, muddle together a few drops of bitters with the teaspoon of sugar. Add a splash of blood orange juice and muddle to combine. Top with bourbon and ice. Add cherries and stir to combine. Allow to sit a few minutes to allow the flavors mellow before drinking. Enjoy!

Peach Jam Bourbon Cobbler Cocktail

From Thirteenth Colony

Oh, the joys of a juicy cobbler loaded with summer’s fresh peaches. Is there anything better? This cocktail will have you sitting on your winter porch wrapped in a soft warm blanket imagining those warm summer days filled with peaches. Adding peach jam to your cocktail creates a smoother longer lasting flavor.

Ingredients

  • Ice Cubes for your cocktail shaker and serving
  • 2 heaping tablespoons of peach jam
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • 4 shots Thirteenth Colony Southern Bourbon Whiskey
  • 2 mint sprigs
Directions

In a cocktail shaker, add enough ice to come up almost to the top.

Add the jam, lemon juice and Bourbon. Secure the lid. Shake, shake, shake, making sure the jam doesn’t sit on the bottom of the glass. Strain into two glasses with ice, garnish with a mint sprig, and serve.
