Bootleg Black Gold Whiskey Cocktail Recipe

Bootleg Black Gold Whiskey cocktail is smooth, slightly sweet with a touch of orange. It’s a great after dinner or an anytime sipper. Even if Whiskey isn’t your thing, this drink could have you changing your mind.

This Whiskey cocktail is so smooth. It’s a perfect after-dinner drink because of its sweet notes or just a great sipper any time.

Our alcoholic beverages used to consist primarily of a lite beer. From there we started enjoying the microbrews a little more, which we still do, but now we have moved into sipping cocktails.

John came up with the Bootleg Black Gold Whiskey Cocktail recipe, and if we still had to worry about “Prohibition”, I’d probably have a still in my basement just so I could sip one now and then.

Two glasses of a whiskey cocktail sitting on a silver platter garnished with orange peels.

According to Wikipedia “Prohibition in the United States was a nationwide constitutional ban on the production, importation, transportation and sale of alcoholic beverages that remained in place from 1920 to 1933″. It’s also true that the “Great Depression spanned from 1929 to 1939. Could the two be connected? Perhaps “Prohibition” caused the “Great Depression”! I mean what were they thinking?

I’m so glad we’ve put aside such silliness as “Prohibition”. I don’t think I would ever have gotten to know my husband, John without a beverage here and there. I’m a bit introverted and him, well, he isn’t exactly a chatterbox.

Don’t have time to make it now? Pin it for later! 

ARE YOU STILL LOOKING FOR MORE AMAZING COCKTAILS?

We love a good cocktail! You can find all of our great cocktails here!

John is more of a tequila guy but this whiskey drink has him widening his horizons.

The secret to a good cocktail is using great ingredients. We are partial to Templeton Rye Whiskey and Grand Marnier for this cocktail.

If it doesn’t taste good, it’s not going to get better mixed into a cocktail. How about you, what is your favorite beverage? Do you like to mix them up or stay with your favorites?

Thank you, Leslie! I like a good bourbon but haven't tried Evan Williams. I am liking Larceny or even Templeton Rye. I'll give it a try for investigative purposes you know?
