Craft Cocktail: Patio Slammer

Yes, as I type this post – it is snowing in Chicago. And, yes that is more than a little irritating to most everyone here in town. But, it is April so it is also definitely time to get ready for summer.

When I think about summer, I think of my balcony and cocktails. Without a doubt finding the right cocktail takes a bit of patience, a dash of something new, a taste for adventure, an openness to other people’s knowledge, and friends with good taste.

Thanks to my pal Steve and his palette for whiskey, I have a beautiful bottle of Few White whiskey. And, with the guidance of the folks at Journeyman Distillery I have new recipe for a drink they named the Patio Slammer.

Here are the ingredients:

1.5 oz white whiskey

0.5 oz orange simple syrup

1.0 oz fresh lime juice

How to put it together:

1) Combine all three ingredients in a shaker with ice.

2) Shake until your fingers hurt from the  cold, then there more times.

3) Strain into glass and garnish with a lime wheel (if desired)
