Even though this Whiskey Swirl is made with whiskey the sodas lighten it up; some grapefruit soda and ginger ale make this a refreshing cocktail.

Gr8 Tip:

You can also substitute in rum, but I prefer whiskey for my taste. The whiskey adds much more depth of flavor.
Also, you can muddle in some fresh mint at the beginning, especially if using rum.

Gr8 Household Bar Tip:

Save the nicer cork stoppers from your single malt whiskeys, ryes, bourbons, tequilas, etc. Use them to cork left over wines, they seal better and are much easier to remove. Just be sure to select one that fits snugly.
