The Northern Lights is a wonderful whiskey cocktail that is itself cold but has a delightful warming sensation. This makes it versatile for every season: enjoy it on cold nights to take the chill out or hot summer days to cool down.

The recipe is simple and mixes the honey liqueur, Yukon Jack, with peach schnapps and cranberry and orange juices, making it a very easy and inexpensive drink. The flavor combination is like fruity candy and it is delicious.

Ingredients

  • 2 ounces Yukon Jack liqueur

  • 1 dash peach schnapps

  • 2 ounces orange juice

  • 2 ounces cranberry juice

Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients.

  2. Pour the Yukon Jack and peach schnapps into an old-fashioned glass filled with ice.

  3. Fill with equal parts orange juice and cranberry juice.

  4. Stir well.

  5. Serve and enjoy.

How Strong Is the Northern Lights?

Though Yukon Jack itself weighs in at 100 proof, the drink itself is relatively tame because the juices make up most of the volume. If we were to have a total volume of about 6 ounces, this cocktail would have an alcohol content of right around 18 percent ABV (36 proof).
