So I was somewhat irritated when I got home today. I decided to watch a little TV and make a drink to calm down. I grabbed some diet 7Up and some Four Roses, and did a little experimentation. The result is pretty damn tasty.
Bourbon and 7Up
1 oz Four Roses Bourbon (or whatever bourbon suits your fancy)
3 oz Diet 7Up (you can also use regular)
1 lime, sliced into wedges
Get an old fashioned glass (the short kind) and fill it with ice. Add the bourbon and 7Up. Squeeze the lime into the drink and stir lightly. Serves one annoyed and keyed up blogger.
