Cocktail of the Week | One To Nothin'

Cocktail of the Week

Last week my good friend Becca launched a series around these parts showcasing a creative and sexy (always sexy) new cocktail each week. Last week it was the "Siren's Call" and today she's back with a delicious bourbon cocktail called "Yakkity-Yak (Don't Talk Back)," but I'll let her tell you about it.
Ah, bourbon.

Welcome back to Bex's Weekly Creative Cocktail! This week I bring you my "Yakkity-Yak (Don't Talk Back)" cocktail. Inspired by the many whiskey lovers I have out there ranting with sophistication about their lives.

So for the fans of strong and bold flavored whiskey drinks that make you feel important—here you go. When after you take a sip, you give that satisfying sigh and dive right into, “You know sometimes…” I’m sure some tall tales will start with this one, and some unexpected confessions after the second.


  • 2 oz Bourbon
  • 1 oz Benedictine  
  • ½ oz Canton
  • 2 dashes Angostura
*Stir with cubed ice and strain into a rocks glass with fresh large ice cube. Finish with orange zest and garnish with orange peel.

If you want to toss me a challenge or a fun idea, follow me on Instagram (@bexaintwang) and post your thoughts! Also, check out my website ( for more thrilling things I do with my free time.
