Grapefruit Cooler

As far as Coolers go, this one is pretty accurate to the flavor of the drink. Again, I'm showing off the versitility of MurLarkey's flavored whiskies with juice drinks. I feel that it is out of character to use two ounces of a richly oaked whiskey in such a tropical cocktail. If vanilla flavor was the intention, there are liqueurs that can do that instead.

MurLarkey orange whiskey is aged in oak with orange zest. There's no juice or added sugar and the whiskey comes across as dry with hints of vanilla and orange spice, but it's not overwhelming.
  • 2 oz. whiskey (MurLarkey orange whiskey used)
  • 4 oz. grapefruit juice
  • 1/2 oz. red currant syrup (creme de cassis used)
  • 1/4 oz. lemon juice
  • 1/2 lemon and orange slices
Combine liquid ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake and pour into a chilled Collins glass. Garnish with the citrus slices.
