The tangy apple and fresh orange create this amazingly refreshing combination that’s genuinely one of the best bourbon cocktail recipes I’ve made. To accompany the crisp, fruity flavor, and take the drink to the next level, I also created a flavored simple syrup recipe using maple and allspice berries. When everything comes together, this drink is an amazing sipper. Sweet, citrusy, and with a hint of spice, my orange & apple bourbon sour cocktail is a great way to start off your night!
Whiskey makes a great substitution, if you aren’t a bourbon fan. I would recommend using a smooth and mellow whiskey, one that has more citrus notes, rather than on the smokey side. That way the spirit won’t overwhelm the other flavors in this recipe.
