Whiskey Wednesday: Kickin' Blood Orange Spritzer

Happy Wednesday guys!!!
Over a year ago, I started a fun new blog series - 
Whiskey Wednesday!!!

If you missed them, here are past posts:
Irish Mule
 Mint Julep
Bourbon & Sparkling Lemonade
Irish Redhead
Old Fashion
Jameson Coke Floats
Bourbon Cherry Coke
Bourbon Spiked Apple Cider
Hot Toddy
Whiskey Sour
Sage Brown Derby
Strawberry Whiskey Smash
Gold Rush
Blackberry Whiskey Punch

As you can see, I've made quite a few whiskey drinks so far.
Whenever I run across a recipe that sounds appealing,
I make a note to make it soon and include it in this monthly blog series.

While I originally set out to make a variation of this recipe,
I wasn't able to track down blood oranges or even blood orange juice,
so I did the next best thing and created a brand new drink!

The Goods:
Whiskey
Orange Juice
Blood Orange San Pellegrino
Jalapeno

Get all your ingredients prepped and measured out.

Add ice, whiskey, orange juice and sliced jalapenos 
to a cocktail shaker and shake for about 30 seconds. 

Strain mixture into two small glasses.

The liquid should fill about half of each glass.

Finally, top with chilled Blood Orange San Pellegrino.


Cheers your friend, take a sip and enjoy!
Warning - there's quite a kick to these from the jalapenos!!!
