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.
