The Scandalous Rolls Royce

READY IN: 2mins
Recipe by KateL

My variation on Rolls Royce Cocktail #2. Whoever heard of an orange Rolls Royce? Why, it's scandalous! Note that Angosturas Orange Bitters is different than the traditional aromatic Angosturas Bitters.

This was more like a Scandalous Mersaydees! lol! When I went to make this, I thought I had sweet vermouth but didn't, so I substituted a sweet German wine. I used blood orange bitters. The first taste was a bit odd, but after 3 sips I was very happy with this cocktail! Will definitely make again. Thanks, KateL! Made for PAC Fall 2012.
