Sunday Funday: The Lie

No lie, “The Lie” is one of the tastiest cocktails out there. Pinky swear!

It’s bourbon plus orange liqueur, simple syrup, and Kool-Aid! See? Pinky swears are in order. It’s a sophisticated drink with a dash of summer fun, like floating in an infinity-edge pool on a Unicorn float.


  • 1 oz. Bourbon
  • 1/2 oz. Orange Liqueur
  • 1 Tbsp. Jarabe (simple syrup)
  • 1 Lime
  • Orange Kool-Aid (powder)
  • Dash of Cayenne Pepper
  • 1 Orange Peel


Rim glass with lime, orange Kool-Aid, and cayenne pepper. Add ice to glass. Pour bourbon, orange liqueur, and simple syrup over ice. Add a squeeze of lime and garnish with an orange twist. Share a toast with your best friend.
