I'll admit it: I'm a whiskey lush. But I'm also a sucker for spicy cocktails. This drink, made with jalapeño-muddled bourbon, combines those two loves while adding a touch of citrusy tang and bubbles from the blood orange soda. The subtle kick of spice makes this is a great non-beer beverage option to serve with wings at your next football party.
- 3 ounces of bourbon
- 3 slices of jalapeño
- ½ cup of blood orange soda
- Splash of ginger ale
In a glass, muddle the jalapeño slices in the bourbon. Transfer the bourbon into a serving glass (preferably a rocks glass) with one or two ice cubes, straining out the seeds and pieces of jalapeño.
Add the blood orange soda and then top with a splash of ginger ale. Garnish with one of the slices of jalapeño.
