Strawberry Sunshine Bourbon Smash

Servings 1 cocktail

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup bourbon
  • Juice of 1/2 large orange (about 1/4 cup)
  • Juice of 1 lemon (about 2 tablespoons)
  • 1 tbsp orange liqueur (triple sec, Cointreau, Grand Marnier….)
  • 1 tbsp strawberry jam 
  • Optional: 1 egg white
  • Optional: mint sprig

Substitutes:

  • Bourbon—> any whiskey, or of course my beloved, tequila, would work here!
  • Orange juice—> grapefruit juice, or the juice of 1 more lemon, but balance all that tartness by adding another tablespoon of strawberry jam
  • Lemon Juice—> lime juice or grapefruit juice
  • Orange liqueur—> Cointreau, Grand Marnier, etc. A lemon liqueur would also be great here! Or St Germaine for a different twist!
  • Strawberry jam—> any berry jam.
  • Egg white—> totally optional, but really adds something special. Makes the cocktail almost smooth and creamy, with lots of foam on top.
  •  Mint sprig—> just for garnish. Use basil or a thyme sprig instead.  

Instructions

  • Add 1/4 cup bourbon, 1/4 cup orange juice, 2 tablespoons lemon juice, 1 tablespoon orange liqueur, 1 tablespoon strawberry jam, and 1 egg white (optional, but gives the cocktail such a cool smooth texture and makes it extra foamy on top!) to a 12 to 16 ounce jar. Add 1/4 cup ice and shake like crazy for 30 seconds.
  • Top the jar off with more ice, or strain into a rocks glass with fresh ice if you’re feeling fancy. Garnish with mint if you’re feeling extra extra fancy!

Look, more cocktails!
