The Whiskey Sling is a time-honored cocktail that has been delighting drinkers for centuries. From the smoky taste of the whiskey to the tangy burst of citrus, it’s a drink that can be enjoyed in any season and on any occasion.

History of the Whiskey Sling

The Whiskey Sling can trace its origins back to the 1700s, where it was enjoyed in its simplest form – whiskey, sugar, and water. Over time, this recipe has been adapted and modified, with bartenders adding their own unique twists. Today, the whiskey sling is a versatile drink that can be customized to suit any palate.

Crafting the Perfect Whiskey Sling

The key to a great Whiskey Sling is using high-quality ingredients. Start with a good quality whiskey – a smooth, full-bodied bourbon, like Wheat Penny 1958, works well for this cocktail.

Savor the Flavor

This Whiskey Sling variation is a delightful mix of sweet and savory. We call it the Honey’s Hammock. The Wheated Bourbon finished with Black Cherry Wood Bourbon adds a warm, smoky flavor, while the St. Germain and Buckeye Cherry Liqueur bring a touch of fruity sweetness. The lemon juice adds a burst of citrusy brightness, and the peach bitters enhance the drink’s complexity. The honey adds a silky texture that ties everything together.
Whether you’re a whiskey aficionado or a cocktail enthusiast, this reinvented Whiskey Sling is sure to delight your taste buds and elevate your drinking experience. Give it a try, and enjoy a sweet and savory sensation that will leave you wanting more.
