When the folks at Fabrizia Spirits reached out to me to try their products and come up with some recipes, I was very excited! I received 2 limoncellos, one cream-based and one regular, and a blood orange liqueur that I decided to focus on first. As soon as I opened the bottle I could smell the delicate, yet distinctive, blood orange aroma that carried right through to the spirit’s flavor without being overly sweet at all.
It would work beautifully on its own served chilled, in a spritzer with prosecco and club soda, or as a replacement for Cointreau in a Cosmopolitan. My first inclination when creating today’s cocktail was to go with a lighter base spirit like gin or vodka, but I quickly changed my mind when I considered how much I love the combination of blood oranges and darker spirits.
