A tall, cool refreshing bourbon cocktail doesn’t have to mean drowning the spirit in cola or adding a splash of water (unless that is your preference of course)! A few simple additions can put a swing in your step without putting a dent in the bourbon flavor. Bourbon Sling comes across as a nice and refreshing bourbon sipper. It sure beats unsweetened tea any day! Southern Comfort adds just a hint of inspiration to the mix, but could be tweaked just a little more for ‘umph’. The drink is great ‘as is’ for quenching thirst on a hot day or chilling out after a long day’s work.
2-1/2 parts Jim Beam Black
1/2 part Southern Comfort
1/2 part Lemon Juice
2 parts Club Soda
Lemon Wedge Garnish
Combine Jim Beam Black, Southern Comfort and lemon juice in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake to blend. Strain into a Collins glass over fresh ice. Top with club soda. Garnish with lemon wedge.
