Orange Whiskey Soda


The other day when was pouring my weekend whiskey, I realized we were out of carbonated water and the only thing laying around was some orange flavored sparkling water.  I figured I might as well give it a try so poured some in as my mixer and hoped for the best!

I was pleasantly surprised at how well the orange complemented the taste of whiskey and recalled once enjoying another orange based whiskey cocktail called ‘old fashioned’!

So after looking more into the recipe for ‘old fashioned’, I decided to make a simple low-carb/keto version inspired by this classic!

It’s super easy to make, delish, and of course a great choice of drink for you all low-carb/keto people out there!

The simple syrup really helps round out the edges of the whiskey while the citrus notes help highlight the characteristics of your classic Bourbon or Tenseness style whiskey!  Hope you enjoy it!

The ingredients you would need for this recipe would be just Swerve/Monkfruit and carbonated water.  We make our carbonated water with a SodaStream, but you can just use a store-bought one if you prefer.  We also recommend the proper whiskey glassware, which you can pick up at Amazon.

Now, let’s get started!

Directions

1) Gather all the ingredients.

2) In a small stove top pot, add Swerve/Monkfruit and water, bring to boil on medium heat, should take around 1-2 minutes.  Once boiling, reduce heat to low and simmer for 30 seconds.  Remove from heat after and set aside.  This is your simple syrup.

3) Prepare orange peel and set aside.

4) Use either a zester or garlic press to extract out the essential oils from the orange peel into the cocktail cup.

5) Combine simple syrup and carbonated water.  Then add your whiskey of choice and garnish with orange peel.  Note – make sure you occasional stir as the sweet syrup tends to sink to the bottom of the glass.

Hope you enjoy your low-carb/keto Orange Whiskey Soda!
