Orange Whiskey Soda


Jump to Recipe
The other day, I was enjoying my weekend whiskey and had some leftover orange carbonated water, so I decided to use that as a mixer.  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 keto version inspired by the classic.   So here is the recipe we coined Keto Orange Whiskey Soda – cheers!

This cocktail is keto approved at ~0g per serving, so feel free to indulge – responsibly of course!   The cocktail provides a very pleasant sweet orange note followed by a smooth rye/bourbon finish.

The ingredients you would need for this recipe would be just Swerve 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!

Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp Swerve
  • 2 tbsp Water
  • 1.5 fl oz Bourbon or Rye Whiskey
  • 1 fl oz Carbonated Water (we use SodaStream)
  • 1 Orange Peel

Directions

1) Gather all the ingredients.

2) In a small stove top pot, add Swerve 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 1″ x 1″ block of orange peel into cocktail cup.

5) Combine simple syrup and cold SodaStream water (SodaStream tutorial here) first.  Then add rye or Bourbon whiskey and remaining orange peels.  Note – make sure you stir well while enjoying this drink as the sweet syrup tends to sink to the bottom of the glass.
