7 of Clubs

That's right! I have Mexican Coke! What's so great about Mexican coke? Real sugar: you can tell it tastes a bit more rich, the cola less citric. It's a throwback flavor for some of us who miss the way Coca-Cola used to taste.

Here the classic Seagram's Seven Crown playing cards series experiments with the idea of a mint flavored cola. It is not as bad as it sounds. The sweet long drink known as the 7 of Clubs has a cool minty finish. I rather like how it is cleansing and a little like a classic soda fountain treat from bygone years. When sipped through a straw, it comes across like a quaint but almost forgotten luxury.
  • 1 1/2 oz. Seagram's 7 Crown whiskey
  • 3/4 oz. peppermint schnapps (white creme de menthe used)
  • 6 oz. cola (Mexican Coke used)
Build cocktail with whiskey and schnapps in a Collins glass. Add ice and top with cola. Stir gently with the straw.
