A Sally-Benson....allow me to explain.
While working on my new house I asked my GF to fix me a drink, she then asked what I wanted I said I dont know think of something. Well, we have lots of scotch and bourbon in my house, also lots of vodka and a few other spirits (I dont like vodka drinks), but not too much stuff to make mixed drinks with. Also since I am on a ketogenic diet right now (all protein) I want to keep the carbs very low to none. So she came over with a golden colored, slightly cloudy drink with some limes and ice in it. I said what is this, she said I just mixed some things together...I took a sip, damn good.
Whiskey (She used Makers Mark)
Sugar (we used Splenda)
Fresh squeezed lime juice
lots of ice
Thers is no exact measurement since she cobbled it together, but tonight I made one for myself following her recipe and I went heavy on the bourbon, the thing is the lime and sugar (splenda) seems to cut the hashness of the bourbon, so it really goes down easy. Give it a try.
Oh yeah, the name, she is gonna kill me for this....when she was a little girl she decided that she did not like the name her parents gave her and told them to call her Sally Benson...neither she nor her parents know where she got the name from but I kid with her all the time, in fact naming the drink Sally-Benson caused a frown on her face, but I know she liked the homage and reference.
For those who know what a Caipirinha is, this drink is very similar in recipe and taste except you swap the cahchasa for whiskey and add the soda water.
