Welcome to Boozinette. This is the Whiskey Mango Foxtrot.

  • 2 oz bourbon
  • 1/2 oz mint syrup
  • 3/4 oz lemon juice
  • 1/4 slice of mango
  • 1 lemon twist
  • 1 bunch of mint
  • 2 cups of sugar
  • 1 cup of water

In a small saucepan, bring all ingredients to a boil. lower heat to a simmer for five minutes. Strain, contain, let cool and refrigerate. Use to freshen up any beverage that’s tasting not-so-fresh.

Muddle a quarter slice of mango into a cocktail shaker. The end result should communicate your feelings.

Pour all liquid ingredients over mango and add ice. Shake like a jumbled shortwave transmission for 10-12 seconds. Fine strain into a lowball over ice, garnish with a lemon twist and try an alternative frequency if your reception isn’t clear.
