St George Spritz (Original Recipe)

There's so much orange flavor with MurLarkey Orange Whiskey and Lillet Blanc, not to mention the many citrus peels found in Don Ciccio and Figili's Ambrosia, that this light and boozy cocktail needs the name of a powerful historical figure.

St. George is the patron saint of England, which is not so important as the fact that one of his symbols is the orange tree. Legend tells of how after George's battle with the dragon, he was healed by oranges. Other stories tell that the tree shielded him from the dragon's flames.

What it all comes down to is a spritz that uses soda to fizz up flat ingredients; no sparkling wine required!
  • 1 oz. MurLarkey orange whiskey
  • 1 oz. Lillet Blanc
  • 1 oz. Don Ciccio and Figili Ambrosia
  • club soda or sparkling water
  • orange slice and mint for garnish
Combine alcoholic ingredients in a chilled highball glass full of ice and stir to combine. Top with soda water and stir gently. Garnish with orange slice and mint.
