Chapel Hill

Just the other night a guest requested a Chapel Hill. There was some trepidation between the servers and other bartenders, but I stepped up. After all, I lived in the Raleigh-Durham region for three years and made the Chapel Hill many times for myself and others as a regional delicacy.

Curacao makes the cocktail more drinkable, less bitter and fiery with alcoholic heat, than many bourbon cocktails. This is a citrus--orange particularly--cocktail with a fat orange peel to remind you that nothing is so bad that a little sugar and fruit can't make it better.
  • 2 oz. bourbon (Four Roses yellow label used)
  • 1/2 oz. lemon juice
  • 1/2 oz. white curacao
  • orange slice
Combine liquid ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with orange slice.
