Carbonated Piston Slinger
This is Ted “Dr. Cocktail” Haigh’s recipe, which we discovered in Gaz Regan’s The Joy of Cocktails. If you go to the trouble of keeping something like 151-proof Demerara rum around, it makes sense to have a good sloe gin – it really makes a difference.
Shake everything (except for the sparkling water) with ice. Strain into an ice-filled short glass, top with soda, and garnish with a cherry and a lime wedge.
