Drink of the Week: The Omaha Orchard Fizz

Greetings, NowOmaha.com faithful! As we find ourselves in the middle of summer, let’s revel in the season’s freshest flavors. Our Drink of the Week—the Omaha Orchard Fizz—is a fruity and fizzy sensation, perfect for sipping under the Nebraska sun.

Drawing inspiration from Nebraska’s rich apple orchards, this cocktail combines apple cider, bourbon, and a splash of ginger ale to create a refreshing and slightly spiced summer drink.

Here’s how to make the Omaha Orchard Fizz:


  • 4 oz apple cider (chilled)
  • 2 oz bourbon
  • 1 oz lemon juice
  • Ginger ale
  • Ice cubes
  • Apple slice and cinnamon stick for garnish


  1. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice and add the apple cider, bourbon, and lemon juice.
  2. Shake well until chilled.
  3. Strain the mixture into a tall glass filled with ice.
  4. Top with a splash of ginger ale.
  5. Give the cocktail a quick stir.
  6. Garnish with an apple slice and a cinnamon stick.

Whether you’re kicking back in your backyard, enjoying a picnic, or heading out to explore the beautiful orchards around Omaha, the Omaha Orchard Fizz is a splendid companion. It’s the epitome of what a Midwestern summer should taste like—sweet, slightly tangy, and oh-so-refreshing. Cheers!
