I would just like to note that it is currently snowing in 47 of the 48 contiguous states in America right now. If you count Alaska, that makes 49. Here in Florida, the only non-snow-laden locale on the mainland, it is 72 degrees with a gentle breeze. Chances are, if you are reading this right now, you need a little taste of south Florida in your life with a splash of Trop50 juice beverage.
Here’s the perfect cocktail that is fresh, simple, and can transport you to summertime. It’s a variation of a traditional Bourbon Smash with a Florida twist that will leave you feeling both a little tropical with a hint of warmth…and it pairs perfectly with your new year’s resolutions!
Yes, your new year’s resolution! Did you make a goal to make better choices in the new year or create a healthier life? The key ingredient in this cocktail is Trop50. With the goodness of orange juice and only half the calories and sugar, it helps you pursue your goals in the new year!
Trop50 offers the great-tasting goodness of orange juice with 50% less sugar and calories and is squeezed from fresh oranges, provides 100% of your vitamin C needs and has no artificial sweetener. Each 8-oz. glass has 100% of your day’s vitamin C and is a good source of potassium – with no artificial sweeteners.
To mix up your own happy hour treat, pair your favorite whiskey with fresh mint, limes, and use a whiskey tumbler! We also used JUMBO ice cubes that we created with a fun mold we found.
Fresh mint is key to this pairing since it offers a refreshing flavor that works in any season.
- 3 parts Trop50
- 1 Part Bourbon Whiskey
- 1 Tsp Lemon Juice
- 1 Tsp Key Lime Juice
- Mint Leaves
- In shaker, mix Bourbon and juices with ice.
- Using lime wedge, rim edge of whiskey tumbler and dip into sugar.

Ignore the snow and pretend you are enjoying your cocktail somewhere in the Dry Tortugas. Cheers!
