Bourbon Sloe Gin Fizz

Bourbon differentiates this sloe gin fizz from the other fizz drinks that fortify sloe gin with more gin. I loved the inviting color of this cocktail, so cherry red it was unbelievable. But that's what an ounce of sloe gin will do to a drink. It will also make your drink taste a little like cough syrup. After drinking half a bottle of sloe gin while suffering through a cold, I am amazed that I am struggling with the stuff now that my senses are back to normal.
  • 2 oz. bourbon (Four Roses yellow label used)
  • 1 oz. sloe gin
  • 1 tsp. lemon juice
  • 1 tsp. sugar syrup
  • maraschino cherry
  • lemon wheel
Combine all ingredients except cherry and lemon wheel in a shaker with ice. Shake and pour into a chilled highball glass. Garnish with cherry and lemon.
