Blood Orange Bitters

I found this recipe on the Hennessy Cognac website (which has quite a few more great looking recipes). What appealed to me about the recipe is how similar it is to my own Heretic Cocktail I designed last winter. Hennessy and I agree that orange and lemon are great complimentary flavours for brandy or Cognac!
