Cold and Flu Season Cure = Bourbon

With all these cold, flu and bubonic plague bugs going around these days, we need a good-old-fashioned-feel-better concoction. Any good hot toddy made with a nice bourbon, honey and lemon will work but sometimes I don't like the heat. Maybe I want something cold or fizzy or both. Maybe a bourbon sling! And another round of Tylenol Cold and Congestion...

Bourbon Sling:
  • 2 1/2 ounces of bourbon
  • 1/2 ounce of Southern Comfort
  • 1/2 fresh lemon juice
  • 5 to 6 ounces of chilled club soda
  • lemon wedge

Shake the liquid ingredients except the club soda vigorously with ice. Strain into an ice-filled highball glass. Top with club soda and gently stir. Squeeze the lemon wedge over the drink and drop it in.
