Happy Hour. Which is terrible, because I’ve owed Melissa of Twisted Words a cocktail since December.
Shame on me.
Actually, when I first began this blog it wasn’t my intention to do a happy hour post every Friday. I started Cocktail Time leading up to the release of Human Resources, Martinis, and Other Bad Things (obviously), and then kept posting drinks through the release of Drink Well (even more obvious). But you lushes loved those damned cocktails so much I kept on with the weekly happy hour, until, somewhere along the line, I got cocktailed out.
I think today we all need a drink. This one, however, has Melissa’s name on it.
- 2oz Kentucky Bourbon (I used Woodford Reserve)
- 1oz Sour Apple Schnapps
- Cranberry juice
- Ginger ale
- Orange bitters
In an ice-filled old fashion glass, pour bourbon and apple schnapps, add 2 ounces cranberry juice, top with ginger ale and add 2 dashes orange bitters. Stir, and garnish with an orange slice.
Best enjoyed in pajamas, but if you must go out after one of these, take a cab!
