An Ode to the Simple Whiskey Soda

posted in: Cocktails

whiskey soda cocktail

Okay, I’ll admit it: the whiskey soda is not the most festive cocktail in the world. In fact, it’s kind of boring as fuck. But it’s still so wonderful in so many ways.

To start, the whiskey soda cocktail doesn’t require any measuring, and really, you don’t even need a recipe. Just put some whiskey and club soda over ice in whatever proportions you’d like, and you have a boozy, bubbly drink in less than 30 seconds. And speaking of those proportions, you can make it super strong (e.g. whiskey with a splash of soda) or when you’re super hungover, you can do what I do: club soda with a splash of whiskey.

You can add a lime wedge, a twist, or even a dash of Angostura bitters. Or nothing at all. And if you’re feeling frisky, that club soda can be your favorite flavor of La Croix. It may not play beautifully with the whiskey, depending what flavor you choose and what whiskey you’re using, but — come on — if you’re adding La Croix to your whiskey, do you really fucking care that much?

Plus, when you’re on a low-carb diet, like I’m supposed to be right now, the whiskey soda is a perfectly fine drink that has NO CARBS. Yes, I repeat, the whiskey soda cocktail has zero carbs. I still don’t understand how whiskey doesn’t have any damn carbs, but I’m not going to fight anybody about it.

Perhaps the best thing about a whiskey soda is that it’s a great way to drink shitty whiskey. While I am in no way advocating the regular consumption of bad booze, sometimes you’re out and about and the bar selection is less than desirable. That’s when you order a whiskey soda with a lime. Of course, if you’re making a whiskey soda cocktail at home, you should use something you like — maybe just don’t use your most expensive stuff.

Fill an old-fashioned glass a handful of ice. Add whiskey, then club soda. Enjoy.

    Now, even if you started out as a novice blogger, sooner or later, you would have stumbled upon your blog’s URL—you know, that horizontal line of text that keeps reappearing up top each time you sign in to your blogging platform.
    You may even have gone well past typing the whole thing out and become adept at grabbing it by highlighting it and copy/pasting it, and you now feel like a bit of a wizard and on top of the game.

    Even those as slow as slugs have winkled out that .com, .ca, and .org are site URLs. So that part of the form at least is easily navigable. But, it’s that bottom line that is the Waterloo, and that cuts many bloggers right off at the knees.
    For anyone who is trying to bump up blog readership, adding their blog’s RSS feed URL is a necessary, all-be-it painful step (and you thought going to the dentist was bad!). A Feed URL can facilitate automatic updates of your posts,
