The Cloudy Sky, from the The Washington Post‘s Spirits column, is a lovely way to show off a good sloe gin, and a perfect summer highball.
You can use ginger ale or ginger beer here, but we much prefer it with the spicy bite of a good ginger beer.
- 2 parts Sloe gin
- 1 part Lime juice
- 2 parts Ginger beer or Ginger ale
Build in the order given in an ice-filled short glass. Garnish with a lime wheel.
