Park Lane

Every so often, a sloe gin cocktail really hits the spot. I recommend a hot day where a Manhattan served up doesn't sound appealing. That is because sloe gin has that berry flavor that I associate with Slushies. It bends the flavor of a whiskey drink to something snappy and sweet and somehow familiar.

You can use any whiskey to do the Park Lane, however I recommend using an understated whiskey. Your good scotch or bourbon is wasted here, while citrus flavors are complimentary. So Canadian or Irish whiskeys are best, but for a change, try a citrus flavored whiskey like MurLarkey's lemon whiskey. 
  • 1 1/2 oz. blended whiskey (MurLarkey lemon used)
  • 1/2 oz. sloe gin (Mr. Boston used)
  • 1 tsp. lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp. sugar syrup or to taste
Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
