Bloody Hell: Blood Oranges, Jalapeno, Whiskey and Beer Cocktail

Bloody Helly Beer Cocktail, Blood Oranges, Beer, Jalapenos, Whiskey

If there is anything that can lure me away from ordering a good beer, it’s a spicy cocktail.

The heat in a fresh pepper and some whiskey will get me every time. Once blood orange season rolls around, I’m powerless. Blood oranges have a great flavor, part naval orange, part raspberry and the color is incredible. The season has just started and ends far too soon. During the few peak weeks that I’m able to find these beauties that make my cutting board look like an episode of Dexter, I juice and freeze as much as I can for later.

Because before too long the only orange I’ll be able to find will be the boring orange ones.

This is awesome Jackie! Could you substitute sugar if you had to? I tried but wasn’t sure the right amount.


Jackie February 2, 2014 um 3:03 pm

You’d have to make a heavy simple syrup, 1 part really hot water, one part sugar, stir until dissolved then let cool. If you just use sugar it will be grainy.

Just made this. I didn’t have an IPA, so I used a pilsner and it is my new favorite cocktail. I used 100 proof Knob Creek bourbon and half a very large jalapeño. I recently made a blood orange whiskey sour and BO martini. Both were very good but this recipe is delicious. Now to stock up on blood oranges before they are gone. Cheers!

Yay! That makes my day!
