Imagine the sweet, smoky flavor of your favorite whiskey infused with the tart bite of orange juice. This combination, as peculiar as it may sound, is devastatingly delicious!
What is a Whiskey and Orange Juice?
A Whiskey and Orange Juice is yet another entry into the family of liquor and fruit juice highballs. Orange juice is one of the best fruit mixers around because it blends so well with just about everything. Whether you are drinking and Tequila Screwdriver, a Vodka Screwdriver, Madras, or an Amaretto and Orange Juice, the sweet and tangy flavor brings life to every drink.
A Whiskey OJ is no different. The sharp citrus flavor of the orange juice takes the bite off of your whiskey with the end result being an incredibly smooth, easy sipping classic.
