Traditionally served in a shot glass, this cocktail simplifies the experience to its rawest form, combining the bold flavors of whiskey with a hint of sweetness from sugar, and a zesty, aromatic infusion of orange. Lacking a detailed mixing process, the drink relies on the unique method of masticating orange peel and sugar before taking a shot of whiskey to create a distinctive taste sensation. The result is a cocktail experience that is both rugged and unrefined, reflecting a minimalist yet potent character that is likely to appeal to those preferring strong and straightforward drinks with a citrus twist.
