Drinking Rebel Bourbon straight never disappoints. But when the occasion calls for a bourbon or whiskey cocktail, only one of these rebellious drink recipes will do. Our philosophy on mixing cocktails: Make them original, or don’t make them at all.

Fiery Orange and Rye

Satisfies your need to light something on fire.
4 ounces Rebel Bourbon Straight Rye Whiskey
1 1/2 ounces fresh lemon juice
1 ounce triple sec
1/2 serrano or jalapeño pepper, sliced in half (and seeds removed, if desired)
2 orange twists
Wooden strike-anywhere kitchen matches

Optional sugar rim:
2 teaspoons granulated sugar
1/4 teaspoon chipotle chile powder

Add rye, lemon juice, triple sec, and pepper to a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake until chilled (about 10 to 12 shakes). Strain into a chilled old fashioned glass.

To garnish, have the orange twist at hand. Light a match and hold it over the cocktail. Take the orange twist and hold the edges near the match for a brief moment. Squeeze the orange twist to bend it and force the oils through the flame onto the cocktail. Blow out the match and drop the twist into the cocktail.

Optional sugar rim:
Mix the sugar and chile powder together on a small plate. Moisten a clean dish towel and place on another small plate. Invert the glasses on the towel to wet the rims, then dip the rims in the sugar mixture.

Neat, Spicy, Winter
