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.

I love this app

Super practical, informative, easy to use, even inspiring for lovers of cocktails or just those curious to try a few recipes over time and keep an inventory of favorite recipes handy. Updated fairly judiciously, thankfully, so it isn’t cluttered up with unproven concoctions resulting in an overwhelmingly-sized library with too many ridiculous or middling cocktails. Attractive, welcoming, well-designed UI.
