Sloe Scibyville Sling (Death & CO. Recipe)

Not too many drinks are made with sloe gin. It is kind of an old world thing and the sweetness is really only appreciated in winter. I'm sure that the Plymouth sloe gin is much better than this Mr. Boston variety, but it is what I can afford. 

Still, not a bad drink, with the berry liqueur that makes a Sling a Sling coming in the form of sloe gin. There's also an apple note from applejack. Scobeyville is in New Jersey, home state of the Laird's apple brandy distillery.

  • 2 oz. Laird's apple brandy (Applejack 86 used)
  • 1 oz. Plymouth sloe gin (Mr. Boston used)
  • 1/2 oz. lemon juice
  • 3/4 oz. simple syrup
  • 2 dashes Peychaud's bitters
  • club soda
  • fuji apple slice as garnish

Shake all ingredients except soda and garnish and strain into a highball glass full of ice. Top with soda and stir gently. Garnish with the apple slice.
