1½ oz C.W. Irwin Bourbon
¾ oz Lime Juice
½ oz Orange Juice
½ oz Hibiscus Simple Syrup*
Lime Wheel for Garnish
Salt (Optional for Rim)
Begin by running lime wheel around rim of martini glass. Now dip lightly in coarse salt. In clean shaker tin add all ingredients, then ice and shake gently to blend. Strain into prepared martini glass, garnish with lime wheel.
A wonderful idea for those wanting to have a tart drink without being overly sweet. Light floral notes from the hibiscus flowers compliment orange notes alongside a delicious bourbon to make this vibrant “bourbon-rita” a good fit for all palates. It’s also a great option for preparing in large batches for group parties.
