Blood Orange Whiskey Cocktail

Ingredients
  • 1 1/2 ounces whiskey or bourbon {I used Bulleit Bourbon}
  • 1/2 ounce Amaro Nonino Quintessentia
  • 2 1/2 ounces freshly squeezed blood orange juice (about two blood oranges)
  • 1/4 ounce freshly squeezed lemon juice (about a quarter of a lemon)
  • 1/2 ounce agave nectar
  • 2-3 dashes orange bitters
  • Sprig of thyme

Instructions
  1. Juice the citrus and set aside.
  2. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add the whiskey, Amaro, blood orange juice, lemon juice, agave nectar, and bitters.
  3. Shake until nicely chilled. Strain and pour into a cocktail glass filled with fresh ice.
  4. Finally, squeeze the thyme sprig a few times to release its aroma and garnish!
