Good ingredients make great cocktails. With citrus season in full swing, I’ve been shaking up cocktails and mocktails with fresh squeezed juice. This drink recipe is a mix of fresh squeezed clementine juice and bourbon whiskey. The addition of orange liqueur and orange bitters amps up the citrus flavor.
