Carbonated Piston Slinger | Cocktail Party

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.

Ingredients

Instructions

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.

Game Changer

This is a game changer. When you're at the liquor store, thinking, "Yeah, ok fine what does Ancho Reyes liquor get me?" you open the app, look up Chile liquor and see that it gets you like 11 new cocktails. This is addictive, and indeed worth the price. We're having a blast under quarantine. While some of the ingredients are kind of anonymous, the icons look like the Campari bottle, and the descriptions often tell you if Campari will work or if you need Aperol. If you <3 cocktails, get this.
