Refreshing Bourbon Cocktail Recipe: Bourbon Sling

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.
