Whiskey Sunset

photo-253Happy MAY! Wow, I can’t believe its May… where has the time gone? I realize this week has been the week of the liquid recipes/adult beverages but I am just a few days away from vacation and nothing says vacation like a refreshing beverage in the sun! This cocktail is a little spin off the traditional whiskey lemonade, which is one of my favorite summer cocktails. Whip one of these up and you’ll feel like you’re on vacation too! bulleit-ryeWhat you’ll need:

  • 2 oz. Bulleit Rye Whiskey (Or another type of rye whiskey but Bulleit is my favorite!)
  • 6 oz. Limeade (I use simply limeade)
  • Splash fresh pomegranate juice
  • Ice

To mix:

  1. Put whiskey and limeade in a cocktail shaker with some ice, shake vigorously.
  2. Place a hand full of ice cubes in a glass and pour whiskey mixture over ice.
  3. Pour a splash of pomegranate juice over whiskey (the pomegranate juice should sink to the bottom giving it a pretty sunset look!)
  4. Garnish with a fresh lime wedge or pomegranate seeds.
  5. Enjoy! (Preferably in the sun looking at a great view…)
