Summer Crush

If you favor flavors other than sweet vanilla, floral citrus, and mint, there are a plethora of options from which to choose.

One comes from Fitz Bailey of Coopers’ Craft, who took the beachside classic Crush and gave it a bourbon spin.

What you’ll need:

  • 1 Navel Orange, Freshly Juiced
  • 2 oz. Coopers’ Craft Bourbon
  • 1 oz. Orange Liqueur
  • 3–4 oz. Lemon-Lime Soda
  • Orange Wheel (For Garnish)
  • Mint Sprig (For Garnish)

How to whip it up:

  1. Fill a rocks glass with crushed ice.
  2. Pour the bourbon, orange liqueur, and fresh orange juice in the glass.
  3. Give it a gentle stir. Top it with the soda and garnish with the orange wheel and mint sprig.
  4. Optional – For a lower-calorie version, replace the soda with seltzer water.
