1 ounce Bourbon whiskey
1/2 ounce sweet vermouth
1/2 ounce orange curaçao
3/4 ounce freshly squeezed lime juice
1 lime wedge
1 mint leaf
Fill a cocktail shaker halfway with ice. Add the bourbon, sweet vermouth, orange curaçao, and lime juice and shake, shake, shake.
Strain the concoction into a cocktail glass. Add the lime wedge and mint leaf and sip to your heart’s content. Repeat as desired.
if you can’t find orange curaçao, simply swap any orange liqueur. You could also substitute blue curaçao, although rumor has it you’ll end up sipping something that’s a sort of lurid shade of green. Not that there’s anything wrong with that….
