How to Make It

Add all ingredients to a cocktail shaker with a handful of ice, shake it like you’re really mad at it, and strain into a glass. Giant ice cube optional but highly recommended. Garnish with a lemon twist and enjoy. Or don’t.

Why We Like It

In the spirit of continuing to obsess over the Internet’s biggest news this week — and because I know I never kick a guy in an elevator without a damn good reason — I’ve adapted an old whiskey sling recipe in honor of Solange’s big elevator moment. The Solange Sling may sound sweet, but it’s actually quite tart, and of course, I couldn’t resist throwing some bitters into the mix.
