The Countdown Cocktail is one of my original drinks derived from my experimentation with Bols Genever gin and blood orange juice. It's a very simple drink served on the rocks that has a semi-sweet profile of citrus and that dash of bitters is essential to round it all off. This slow sipper is similar to a Screwdriver but is far more interesting and the blood orange juice has more vitamin C than regular orange juice so you can feel a little better about drinking it.
- 2 oz genever gin
- 3 oz blood orange juice
- 2 dashes of Angostura aromatic bitters
- blood orange slice for garnish
