Place 2 teaspoons light agave nectar in a cocktail shaker. Add 1 teaspoon hot water and stir. Then add:
• 1 1/2 ounces Jameson's Irish whiskey
• 3/4 ounce fresh-squeezed blood-orange juice
• 1/2 ounce fresh-squeezed lemon juice
• 2 dashes Angostura bitters
Fill shaker with ice, shake vigorously (thus burning ten calories), and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Top off with ¾ oz red wine, carefully poured over the back of a spoon to create a layered effect.Hey, don't replace your daily smoothie with one of these, but it might be good drink to have for that night when you go out drinking after you already had a night out drinking.
