I’m not sure if I created a drink or not, but for the past six months or so I have supplemented my Bourbon and ginger with a little pick me up. I add a maraschino cherry and a bit of the juice and Stirrings Blood Orange bitters. I do one part Bourbon to one to two parts ginger ale using a generic ginger for the mix. Actually the ginger is the least expensive brand from Lowes Foods and the cherries are the lowest price with stems. For the cherry juice I use a bout half a teaspoon and for the blood orange bitters a teaspoon or so.

What you end up with is a very nice ginger based Bourbon drink which has the citrus and cherry characteristics of an Old Fashioned. Give it a whirl if you are so inclined.
