No lie, “The Lie” is one of the tastiest cocktails out there. Pinky swear!

It can also be modified as a fun-for-all-ages mocktail. Teens will appreciate the photo-worthy, peachy-pink hue of the MSG. And the younger set will enjoy freezing the fruit molds and adding bubble water to the mix.

To make the cocktail version, add bourbon plus orange liqueur, simple syrup, and Kool-Aid!

See? The Lie is a sophisticated drink with a dash of summer fun, like floating in an infinity-edge pool on a Unicorn float.
