The Bourbony Orange Crusta Cocktail

0.0 from 0 votes

I’d like to present to you the perfect (in my opinion!) bourbon crusta recipe, a delightful cocktail blending bourbon, lemon juice, sugar, and bitters, all elegantly served in a sugar-rimmed coupe glass with a citrus twist. But of course, this is my own take on this classic cocktail, so here’s the Bourbony Orange Crusta. For an extra touch of sweetness, I opted for Luxardo and Gran Gala (my go-to orange liqueur), and finished it off with a vibrant orange peel garnish.

If you want to spice things up a bit on a cold night, try rimming the glass in a cinnamon-sugar mix! The cinnamon and orange flavors will pair nicely with the warmth of the bourbon. Just add a cozy fire and an old movie, and you’re set for the evening!

Hi! I’m Bob!

If it’s got bourbon in it, I’m drinking it. And if it’s really good, I’m gonna figure out how to make it, and share it with you. Because I’m good like that.
