Description: The Tangerine Twilight Sizzle is a delightful blend of warmth and effervescence, perfect for late evenings when the hues of the twilight sky inspire a cozy yet refreshing beverage. This drink harmonizes the deep notes of whiskey with the sweet, almond-like flavor of amaretto, uplifted by the citrusy zest of tangerine and lemon, and balanced with the effervescent sparkle of Pepsi and sparkling water.

Instructions: 1. In a shaker, combine the whiskey, amaretto liqueur, tangerine juice, and lemon juice with a handful of ice cubes. 2. Shake vigorously for about 15 seconds to chill the mixture and blend the flavors. 3. Fill the highball glass halfway with ice cubes. 4. Strain the contents of the shaker over the ice in the glass. 5.

Garnish with a fresh slice of tangerine and a lemon twist. 8. Stir gently before sipping to enjoy the full spectrum of flavors as they meld together.
