It's 5:00 Somewhere

In my house, we love our mixed drinks!  They are beautiful, tasty and really hit the spot.  We usually create drinks based off of what we can find in the house.  I had just purchased blood oranges from Trader Joes and thought that the red color would really pop in this drink!  I made this Orange Almondine in the early afternoon, but as the famous saying goes "it's 5:00 somewhere!"

Orange Almondine
Serves 2

3 parts Bourbon
2 parts Disarono
2 parts Orange Juice
Generous Pinch of Cinnamon
Cinnamon Stick, garnish
Blood Orange Slices, garnish

Shake the first 4 ingredients over ice.  Strain and pour into a glass.  Garnish with a cinnamon stick and blood orange slice.


  1. I am so all over this drink!!! I love everything about it, including that beautiful picture. Bourbon, Disarono and OJ?!? I want to do a million things with that combo.

  2. I don't care for bourbon ... but I do like cooking with Disarono so maybe I'll try a bourbonless version tonight.

    1. ... and it is very good ... even without the bourbon! Thank you for sharing!

  3. Indeed -- my post tells the story of my husband and I drinking Mai Tais at 10:45 in the morning! Your beverage at least has the virtue of some orange juice. Bourbon is my go-to alcohol. Sounds luscious.

  4. What a beautiful and classy drink. Love it!

  5. This sounds so good! I want to make this asap, I love every flavor in here.

  6. beautiful shot! love blood oranges

  7. Love blood oranges, great drink. Loved the picture

  8. Blood oranges are one of my favorite citrus flavors, and I always have a bottle of Disaronno in the house. Looks very tempting!
