Michigan Impossible


2 measures whisky (or bourbon)
4 measures Cherry Good cherry juice drink
1 measures freshly squeezed lime juice
1 measure sugar syrup
2 measures lemonade (optional, to make a taller drink with ice)
Garnish with a slice of orange


Half fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Pour over whisky, Cherry Good, lime juice and sugar syrup. Shake to mix and chill. Pour into a tumbler and add garnish. The lemonade is optional, to make a longer drink in a taller glass (with ice). Sugar syrup is easy to make, by dissolving sugar into water (50/50) and heating it. Even simpler is pouring boiling water onto sugar and stirring, but make sure it’s cool before you use it.
