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.

Bourbon 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.
