The Bloody Monkey: an especially colorful Monkey Gland cocktail made with the juice of the blood orange.
A couple of months ago I wrote a post about the Monkey Gland cocktail, a concoction of gin, orange juice, absinthe, and grenadine.
As I said back then, “it’s going to be fun making these when blood orange season comes along - the color will be dramatic and the flavor sweet and citric.” Well, here ’tis: a Monkey Gland made with the deep purple juice of the Moro orange.
It is every bit as delicious as it is beautiful. But don’t let that color fool you - this is no girly drink.
