imageBlood Orange Old Fashioned

4 dashes blood orange bitters
1 sugar cube
1 splash water
2 oz Bourbon

Place the sugar cube (or 1 barspoon loose sugar) in an Old-Fashioned glass. Add 2 or 3 dashes of bitters and a small splash of water and muddle until sugar has dissolved. Add whiskey and ice. Stir until cold.

Ice Orb

Add water to a sphere ice mold; leave in freezer for one and a half hours. Flip the ice mold upside down and leave in freezer for an additional hour.  Remove top of ice mold and create a small hole in the sphere. You can do this by using soldering iron or heating a Philips head screw driver over the stove. Once a hole is created, use a syringe or straw and remove the unfrozen water. The hole should be large enough to insert a small cocktail funnel. Funnel your cocktail into the sphere. Using a small hammer, or the end of your barspoon, break the sphere open and enjoy.
