The cocktail is served in a short, wide glass, filled with a golden amber bourbon-based drink, garnished with a twist of orange peel and a sprig of fresh mint. The glass rests on a wooden outdoor table, set against a backdrop of a tranquil summer sunset with hues of orange, pink, and purple in the sky.
