I love bourbon! It is one of my favorite liquors in the whole world. I am always messing around with it and I finally made a nice light and refreshing cocktail with it. I know there are others, but I wanted to create a cocktail for the summer. One that could handle the hot summer temperatures of the south. So I messed around and found the perfect drink. This cocktail adds a refreshing kick to those hot summer days and will cool you off like a nice summer breeze.
- 3 ounces Bourbon
- 1/2 ounce cointreau
- 1 orange wedge
- 4 ounces ginger ale
Fill a rocks glass with ice. Then squeeze the orange wedge into the glass. Add the bourbon and cointreau. Top off with the ginger ale and you have a mighty fine cocktail.
Garnish with a orange slice or wedge.
This cocktail has a fresh taste from the orange, a zing from the ginger ale and a nice tang from the bourbon. The perfect summer cocktail.
