Satisfying a Bourbon Fix – Mixology

Winging Cocktail Recipes One Day at A Time


I’ve been jonesing for a delicious combination of Bourbon and Ginger Beer.  A couple weeks back I had this extraordinary cocktail at Char Steakhouse in Branchburg.  To my dismay, the cocktail menu was not posted on the web, so I had to create what would cure and satisfy this craving.  Above you will see my following experimentation; and though it is delicious, I must warn you I do have a taste (or should i say lack there of) for overwhelmingly strong cocktails.

To try this concoction out, mix up the following:

Squeeze of Fresh Orange

2 Dashes Orange Angostura Bitters

.75oz  Luxardo’s Maraschino Liqueur

2.5 oz Maker’s Mark Bourbon

Top with Ginger Beer

Stir until Mixed

Garnish with an Orange Slice


Also, I am taking suggestions to name this cocktail.  If you try it out, let me know your variations so I may recreate those as well ;)   Happy Tini-Tuesday Everyone!
