Orange Buck

24 Apr

Many things have occurred in the last few weeks. So many changes to adapt to; some daunting, some demanding, some enjoyable. The biggest one that involves all of the above would have to be a fuzzy little addition to my family. Cham Chamers, say “hello” to Muffin! He’s a five-month old Goldendoodle.

Regal as heck

Little Muffin here has been an unending source of comedy and frustration ever since I got him. After having him for one whole month, I have finally gotten him sort of potty trained, to understand ‘sit’, ‘no’ and ‘come here’, and also properly terrified of umbrellas. Can’t wait for him to grow up!

OK, enough about my puppy, let’s get on with the mixing! The Orange Buck is an amazingly well balanced drink. The ginger ale adds a lot of bite so you don’t need to top with too big of a splash. The Orange Buck is not too sweet, not too sour, not too gassy. It’s just perfect in every aspect. This drink gets 5 stars and 2 thumbs up. Highly recommended! Plus, it’s soooo easy to make. It’ll be great for a casual party or game’s night.

What’ll you need to make an Orange Buck is gin, lime cordial, orange juice, and ginger ale. You’ll also need ice and a cocktail shaker.
