Bodas de Sangre

With Amontillado


There seems to always be a new trend in the world of booze - but some cocktails simply stand the test of time.



Bodas de Sangre

Shake all ingredients together for 15 sec. 


Dried blood orange wheel and a leaf of fresh coriander.

How to make the Blood orange cordial:

  • 500gr sugar
  • 600g water
  • 15gr citric acid 
  • 4 blood oranges 

First peel the oranges, and put the peels together with the sugar. This way you are making a oleo Saccharum

Leave the sugar and the peels for 30 min. So the sugar can take al the oils from the peels. 

In the meanwhile you can boil the water. And juice your pealed oranges. Put the sugar  and the peels in to the boiling water. 
After a few minutes take out the peels.

Wait till all the sugar is dissolved into the water and take it off the heat. 

Stirr firmly and pour in the blood orange juice and citric acid . Keep stirring while you do!

Let it cool down and store it refrigerated.
