Whiskey Sling

So that Whiskey Sour you love and always order at the bar? It's really a Sling. A Sling is spirit, citrus and sugar served on the rocks. A Sour usually has egg white in it and it should be served up in a Sour glass.

I only saying this to point out that the Sour is a little harder to do, so it has devolved into the simpler Sling. Do what you wish with this information.

I got an inexpensive bottle of whiskey to do some of those summer cooling cocktails. Seagram's Seven Crown boasts that it is made with 75 percent grain neutral spirit. That's like vodka. Then there's the blend of aged whiskies, which may add some color, but Seagram's 7 is pretty pale. It doesn't explain where that rich wood taste comes from, and the blend is pretty smooth. Careful not to drink too much, it is known to give headaches.
  • 2 oz. blended whiskey (Seagram's Seven Crown used)
  • 1 oz. lemon juice
  • 1 tsp. sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. water
  • orange twist
Combine sugar and water in a shaker and mix to partially dissolve. Add whiskey, lemon juice and ice and shake. Pour into an Old Fashioned glass and garnish with an orange twist.
