I'm running low on Amer Boudreau. Since Hannaford is having a pretty good sale on big bags of oranges I took that as a I sign that I should get started making another batch.

Now that the orange peels are drying I have a pile of denuded oranges. Which means a bunch of fresh orange juice.

And then, what with all of that juice and all, I figured I might as well make some drinks with it. The weather was nice, there was an empty chair just sitting there in the backyard...

Languid Yards
2 1/2 oz Fresh Squeezed Orange Juice
2 oz Bourbon
1/2 oz Aperol
1/4 oz Maraschino Liqueur
Mint

Build lazily over the remnants of a Caipirinha.

*Quantities are just estimates. I didn't measure anything on this one. Adjust to taste. Also, I think I mixed in an aging ruby red grapefruit while juicing all of those oranges.

As for the orange hulls...

You know...for the birds. In this case, Orioles, hopefully.
