5 min

Yield:
1 drink
Level:
Easy

Ingredients
  • 1 orange
  • 2 ounces bourbon
  • 2 dashes orange bitters
  • 3/4 cup root beer
  • 1 ounce heavy cream
Directions
  • Use a vegetable peeler to remove a long piece of zest from the orange, working your way around the fruit.

  • Combine the bourbon and bitters in a tall glass. Twist the orange zest over the glass to release the oils, then drop it in. Fill the glass halfway with ice. Add the root beer.

  • Slowly pour the cream over the back of a spoon into the glass so it floats on top.
