blood orange bourbon cocktails

What a beautiful Saturday morning it is here is Vancouver. Spring is coming………YAY! 😉 I think I will go for my first run of the year today. I usually work out in a gym or hot yoga studio but there is something to be said for just going outdoors and exercising in nature. We need to get natural sources of vitamin D as often as possible!

I must admit that I have never in my 3o plus years been a bourbon drinker…..until my boyfriend brought this smoked maple bourbon home in January. It’s soooo good. 🙂 I saw a drink with bourbon and oranges on Pinterest and knew that I just had to try one. The organic blood oranges I bought photographed so beautifully with their amazing colours. Last night me and my man had a couple of these cocktails before dinner and they are perfect for drink for him and her. They are not too sweet and not to stiff………The perfect match, manly bourbon mixed with maple and orange to make it a little sweeter. 😉 Try these for your next night in, you wont regret it.
