  1. Combine orange juice, bourbon, sugar and cayenne together in a bowl and whisk together until blended. Set aside.

  2. Heat oil in a medium saute pan over medium-high heat. Add shrimp and garlic, and season generously with salt and freshly ground black pepper.

  3. Saute for 4 to 5 minutes, turning once, until the shrimp are cooked and pink and no longer opaque. Transfer the shrimp to a separate plate with a slotted spoon, and set aside.

  4. Add the orange juice mixture to the saute pan and bring to a simmer.
