Mandarine Napoleon Part Two (Cocktails): Hump Day

Oh, Hump Day.

For those of you not “in the know” Wednesday is traditionally referred to as hump day. And by traditionally I don’t mean traditionally. I mean people of my generation and younger tend to say it. I guess you really wouldn’t call that a tradition.


It’s Hump Day because it’s Wednesday, you’re just over the hump on the way downhill until the weekend. Now, for websites such as ours where every day is a weekend, perhaps there isn’t much credence given to Hump Day. But the 9-5s out there know what we’re talking about. And we’re happy to try to help you get through those mid-week doldrums.

So, put that rock down and resist bashing in your monitor. We’re here to help you over that hump.

Hump Day

  • 1 oz Mandarine Napoleon
  • 1 oz bourbon
  • 8 oz chilled strong coffee

Combine the Mandarine, bourbon, and coffee in a coffee mug and then place several ice cubes in the mug. Stir gently and serve.

Coffee, bourbon, and orange always seem to work really well together. So, as you’d expect, by making this an iced coffee drink you have a nice, crisp flavor from the Mandarine Napoleon, while getting some extra body from the coffee and the bourbon.
