creative cocktails: burnt orange

I tried a new cocktail last Saturday, the Burnt Orange. Made with brandy, it is a tasty Winter cocktail, while it is served chilled, the brandy still warms the soul ;) Burnt Orange
  • 3 drops orange bitters or Angostura bitters
  • Juice of 1/2 an orange
  • 3 measures of brandy
  • Slice of orange, decoration

Put 4 or 5 ice cubes in a mixing glass or shaker. Shake the bitters over the ice, add the orange juice and brandy and stir (or shake) vigorously. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass and serve decorated with an orange slice.

This cocktail has a beautiful color to it, even more so when served in a hollowed stem glass.



  1. looks delicious & stylish!

  2. Sounds lovely. I might make those at my Oscar Party next weekend!

  3. Maria, it truly is a lovely drink and delish.

    Vanessa Elizabeth, it would be perfect for an Oscar Party!
