Cheers, Readers! This recipe is my own version of my dear friend Greg’s favorite whiskey drink, what he calls a “Back Forty.” Try it for yourself!
For one drink, I juice a half an apple, a full lime, and a half a lemon. Pour the juice into a cocktail shaker over ice. Add an ounce and a half of whiskey, my favorites are Maker’s Mark or Bulliet, a squeeze of agave nectar, and a dash of orange bitters. Shake, shake, shake…
It’s such a fun way to incorporate fresh-squeezed juice into your “5-o’clock somewhere” festivities.
