Kick in the head cocktail

There is a good reason behind naming this cocktail "Kick in the head". The fruity flavors of mango and Orange covers up the taste of alcohol in the drink. You feel like you are just sipping a tropical drink until after you enjoy the whole glass :)... and that is when you start feeling a "Kick in the head"

Whiskey is any alcohol distilled from grain mash.Bourbon is an American whiskey named for Bourbon County, Kentucky.For a whiskey to qualify as bourbon, the law by international agreement stipulates that it must be made in the USA. It must be made from at least 51% and no more than 79% Indian corn, and aged for at least two years in new, charred oak barrels.Neither coloring nor flavoring may be added. Most bourbon is aged for four years or more.

  1. mango juice - 1/2 cup
  2. orange juice- 1/4 cup
  3. Lime juice - Juice of 1 lime
  4. Rum - 3 oz
  5. Bourbon - 3 oz
