Flynn Friday Foaming at the Mouth Bloody Orange Massacre

Breaking News! Flynn pleads guilty! The dominoes are falling fast now!

 

So, I’m celebrating with a brand fucking new cocktail created just for today, even though I just posted another new cocktail earlier today. This is a variation on the blood orange sour, but I had to give it a longer name and make some bold adjustments. The “foaming” is Mueller foaming at the mouth, and the 3 drops of bitters look like blood, as in “I smell blood in the water”. The massacre refers to Nixon’s Saturday Night Massacre (which arguably was the day that Trump fired Comey which triggered the Mueller investigation). The orange reference should be obvious. Also, notice that the glass is half empty. Here’s the recipe:

 

  • 2 oz. blood orange vodka (I prefer Effen brand)

  • 2 oz. unsweetened cranberry juice

  • ½ oz. fresh squeezed blood orange (or regular orange or tangerine)

  • ½ oz. fresh squeezed lemon juice

  • ½ oz. orange simple syrup (heat equal parts water and sugar with orange zest or peels)

  • 1 egg white

  • 3 drops bitters

Add vodka, juices and egg white to a shaker with no ice. Cap and shake well to froth the egg white. Add ice and shake again to chill. Double strain into a chilled coupe glass. Let sit for a moment to allow the foam to settle at the surface, then finish with 3 drops of bitters.
