Bitter Slipper - Cocktail Recipe

You clicked your heels and said "There's no place like home" three times.  The magic in those ruby slippers sure seemed sweet.  And now you're back in Kansas; but frankly after the technicolor splendor of Oz, Kansas isn't all that.  There's chores and the farm and Auntie Em. . . and that's about it.  So those ruby slippers seem a little bitter now, and maybe you want to be back in Oz.  So this drink's for you Dorothy.

Bitter Slipper.  Ingredients:

  • 3 oz. Crown Royal (or other slightly sweet whiskey, Bulleit Frontier Whiskey, e.g.)
  • 1.5 oz. 7-up or lemon-lime soda
  • Splash of Grenadine
  • 2 shakes of Angastoura bitters
Mix over ice in an old-fashioned glass, garnish with maraschino cherries.  Toast Dorothy.
