Vejk Sling (Death & Co. Recipe)

Slings are popular, tasty and easy to make. They are some of the oldest cocktails in history, and yet they are not going away anytime soon. Basically, you need only a base spirit, some juice and soda, and a dash of a flavorful liqueur or a garnish usually helps distinguish one sling from another.

This Sling is mostly distinguished by scotch. It needs little else to make it interesting, however Dolin blanc and orange bitters send it in an appropriately fruity direction. Furthermore, a chamomile infusion in the Dolin blanc adds earthiness and apple-like notes

  • 2 oz. Compass Box Asyla scotch (Spyburn 10-year-old used)
  • 1 oz. chamomile-infused Dolin blanc vermouth
  • 3/4 oz. simple syrup
  • 1/2 oz. lemon juice
  • 1 dash Bittermen's orange bitters (Hella used)
  • club soda
  • lemon twist

Combine all ingredients except soda in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled Collins glass full of fresh ice. Top with soda and twist the lemon zest over the drink and drop it in.
