Sometimes simple cocktails are some of the best ones. This is one of those cocktails. If you like Whisky, this one is for you, it’s called a Stonewall Whisky Cocktail and it’s super simple to prepare.
Sometimes I think I was born in the wrong era. The bulk of the cocktail recipes I enjoy the most are not only easy to prepare, but also pretty boozy! In the 50’s and 60’s, people didn’t mess around with pre-made mixes or concoctions nor did they measure things out with shot glasses very often. Cocktails were made with maybe 3-4 ingredients tops and most of it was alcohol.
I tend to make most of my drinks in this same vein. I prefer a good strong drink in the evening as opposed to 2-3 sugary or sweet ones but I’ve never had much of a sweet tooth (yet here I am married to a woman who bakes her face off constantly … and well!).
To make a Stonewall, you’ll need your favourite Whisky, some club soda and some simple syrup. The recipe is below for your enjoyment!
- 1.5 ounces of Whisky
- 2 tbsp of simple syrup
- Club Soda
To prepare, add ice to your shaker along with your Whisky and Simple Syrup, give it a shake until cool. Pour into a glass over ice (preferably a single large square or round ice cube). Add club soda to taste. Enjoy!
