Whiskey Cocktail with Orange Juice

bourbon cocktail

It’s time for a whiskey cocktail!  When I lived in LA, one of my favorite restaurants was across the street from my apartment.  Being a creature of habit, I basically ordered the same things every time I went.  One of those items was a whiskey cocktail.  

Unfortunately that restaurant ended up closing, so I was forced to try to recreate it.  So, this is my version of that cocktail.  And It’s quite delightful on a Saturday afternoon.  


  • 2oz whiskey
  • 1/2oz orange juice
  • 3/4oz lime juice
  • 1/2oz simple syrup 
  • 1 sprig of mint leaves, torn


In cocktail glass, place a few mint leaves on the bottom and fill with crushed ice.

In a cocktail shaker, place remaining mint leaves (torn) on bottom and then fill with ice cubes.  Then add all of the liquids.  Shake for a minute and then strain into cocktail glass.

If you want to be fancy, you can garnish with a lime wheel or a few mint leaves.  I personally think it’s pretty enough without.
