Irish Sling

Irish Sling cocktail recipe with Irish whiskey, blanc vermouth, lemon juice, simple syrup and club soda

Irish whiskey tends to get short shrift in this modern cocktail era, so we were overjoyed to find the Irish Sling in the archives of the Spirits column at The Washington Post.

Blanc vermouth lifts the Irish whiskey and makes it sing. Remember that blanc (or bianco) vermouth is different from dry vermouth, the former being sweeter and more floral.

Great drinks-great app

Great cocktail app. Very good list of drinks that actually are well made and tasty. I have used other apps that just were overloaded with tons of junk drinks. It feels like the creators of this app actually enjoyed making the drinks and decided which were good enough to add to the list. Really appreciate the perpetual updates drinks listing too. Hate paying for things more than once.
