The Julius Orange is Death & Co’s take on that 90s-era mall food court favorite, improved with quality booze. It’s a bit more tart and bright than the original; a welcome upgrade, in our view.
Death & Co shakes their version, but it’d also be delicious as a blended drink. Their recipe calls for a dry curaçao (like Pierre Ferrand), but it’s still very good with a sweeter option like Grand Marnier.
- 2 parts Orange curaçao
- ½ part Dark rum
- ½ part Lemon juice
- ½ part Heavy whipping cream
- 1 tsp Vanilla syrup
- 1 dash Orange bitters
Shake all ingredients with ice. Double-strain through a fine mesh strainer into a short glass filled with ice. Garnish with a dusting of grated nutmeg.
If you’d prefer to serve it blended, add all the ingredients to a blender, along with a cupful of ice. Blend on high-speed, and add more ice and blend again as necessary to achieve your desired texture.
