Gin Sling Cocktail Recipe

Happy Hour: Gin Sling

When it comes to cocktails, sometimes simplest is best. Don't get me wrong; I love a libation with celery bitters or creole shrubs as much as the next person, but often it's nice to enjoy a drink that's satisfying in a simple, understated way.

This gin sling, which doesn't call for anything beyond gin, vermouth, bitters, and sparkling water, all staples in my wet bar at home. It's layered enough to be interesting, yet easy enough to bust out anytime — no muddler, exotic ingredients, or shaker required. Keep reading for the recipe.
