A slightly bitter cocktail with blood orange juice mixed with bubbly given to us by author and former Gramercy Tavern managing partner Nick Mautone..

  3. 3Sprinkle 1/2 teaspoon sugar atop orange slices in each glass and muddle together to extract juice. Add 1/2 teaspoon vermouth to each glass and stir.
