Irish Sling

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.

Ingredients

Instructions

Shake everything (except the sparkling water) with ice and strain into an ice-filled tall glass. Top with sparkling water and garnish with a sprig of mint and/or a wheel of lemon.

Terrific Design!

Absolutely love this app. Gives a great visual representation of the ingredients and the user interface is well designed. Been using it to learn how to make cocktails, the descriptions are great about the drinks. As a novice barman, I love that I am learning the origin of the drink and alternative ways to make the drink. Be prepared to have a wide range of alcohol at you disposal! I can make heaps of drinks with the decent home collection I have, but seeing all the recipes what I could make gets me excited! Highly recommended, everyone loves the person who makes excellent drinks!
