Cocktail Recipe of the Week: The Summer Abroad

Welcome back to our "Cocktail Recipe of the Week" series. This week, we have an exciting and sophisticated concoction that will take your taste buds on a thrilling adventure. 


  • 2 oz rye whiskey
  • 1 oz orange curacao
  • 1/2 oz fernet blanca
  • Ice cubes
  • Orange peel for garnish


  1. Begin by gathering all the necessary ingredients and bar tools. Make sure you have a mixing glass, a bar spoon, and a jigger.

  2. In the mixing glass, pour in 2 ounces of rye whiskey, followed by 1 ounce of orange curacao.

  3. Now, add 1/2 ounce of fernet blanca to the mix. Fernet blanca, with its distinctive herbal notes, will bring a complex and intriguing dimension to the cocktail.

  4. Fill the mixing glass with ice cubes, ensuring they are of good quality and size. This will help chill the ingredients and dilute the drink just enough.

  5. Take your bar spoon and gently stir the mixture for about 20-30 seconds. The aim here is to marry the flavors without over-diluting the cocktail.

  6. Once sufficiently mixed, strain the cocktail into a chilled coupe glass or a rocks glass filled with ice.

  7. To add a touch of elegance, take a fresh orange peel and express its oils over the surface of the drink. This will release the citrusy aroma and provide a beautiful garnish.

  8. Optionally, you can twist the orange peel to form a spiral and place it in the glass as a final decorative touch.

Stay tuned for next week's "Cocktail Recipe of the Week" and continue to elevate your cocktail game. Until then, cheers and happy mixing!
