“Rib Job” Grilled Cocktail

  • Author: Robyn


  • 8 ounces liquor- brandy
  • 8 oranges, sliced
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • Rosemary sprigs
  • 4 ribs, sliced, for the “swizzle stick”
  • 1/4 cup barbecue rub to rim the glasses


Preheat grill to medium. Grill the oranges until they form grill marks. At the same time, put the maple syrup in a grill safe pot and heat on the grill with a sprig of rosemary. Let the maple syrup get hot so the rosemary can infuse the maple syrup with flavor.

Next, squeeze the juice of the oranges into a container. Add the maple syrup to taste. If the drink is tart, add a little water. Next, add ice and bourbon and shake all the ingredients in a shaker.

Dip the rims of the glasses into the rub mixture (hence, the original name of the drink, the “Rim Job”) and the drink mixture. Add a rib as a swizzle stick. Congratulations, you just had your first “rib job”.
