Coopers’ Craft Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey, a Louisville product of the Brown-Forman Corporation, celebrates summer with a fun and unique southern-inspired cocktail for you to make at home.
The original Coopers’ Craft Bourbon and new expression, Coopers’ Craft Barrel Reserve, begin with the same spirit but are aged using different wood techniques from the barrel resulting in two distinctively different flavor profiles – ranging from light and gentle to bold and robust.

A unique take on the shore town classic. Coopers’ Craft 82.2 is the perfect substitute for vodka in this beach cocktail.

1 oz. Grand Marnier (or another orange liqueur)
3 to 4 oz. Lemon-Lime Soda (OR seltzer for a lower calorie version)
Orange wedges for garnish
Sprig of fresh mint

Fill a glass with crushed ice. Pour the bourbon, Grand Marnier and fresh orange juice in the glass. Give it a gentle stir. Top it off with the soda, and orange wedge and a few mint leaves. Serve!
