Soul Kiss Cocktail With Blood Orange

Soul Kiss Cocktail With Blood Orange

In the 1933 edition of “The Savoy Cocktail Book,” there’s no shortage of drinks whose names suggest that they’d be perfect for Valentine’s Day (or any day, really). The book offers two versions of the Soul Kiss, both featuring Dubonnet Rouge, the venerable and inexpensive French aperitif. The Soul Kiss Cocktail (No. 1) uses both sweet and dry vermouths, while the Soul Kiss Cocktail (No. 2) contains whiskey. Here, we’ve combined the best of both, along with blood orange juice to impart a romantic shade of deep, sunset pink.
