Bourbon Sling

Most drinkers have heard of the Singapore Sling (which just might be featured on this blog at some point in the future).  But, in keeping with the theme of National Bourbon Heritage Month, today's recipe is another bourbon cocktail.

Bourbon is a wonderful liquor.  Depending on the amount consumed, it can make you [think you are] comical, whimsical, hysterical, adorable, agreeable, beautiful, commendable, valuable, lovable, delightful, genial, sociable, acceptable, graceful, presentable, tasteful, desirable, enjoyable, pleasurable, invincible, and even invisible. 

WARNING:  Excessive use of BOURBON can result in wearing the following SLINGS-


2     oz        Bourbon
1     oz        Lemon Juice
1     tsp       sugar

*     ****       *****

Add all 3 ingredients to a martini shaker 1/2 filled with ice
Shake vigorously
Strain into a chilled cocktail (martini) glass

* Yes, technically this drink calls for 2 tsps of water, but as we learned with another classic bourbon drink:
"I don't water down my drinks.  And neither should you."
