    To give an idea, we only do 3 mixed drinks at home:
    Gin and Tonic
    Aperol Spritz
    Margarita (using only fresh limes and simple syrup)
    So we prefer clean and crisp finishes.

    Try a 1:2 ratio of Crown to lime juice. Add ice. Simple and refreshing.

    Alternatively, you can try a whiskey sour. Simplest recipe would be 3 parts Crown, 2 parts lemon juice, a 1 part of simple or Gomme syrup.

    Along the same line as ChaCha. 1:2 ratio of crown and lemonade is good.

    ^or if that's too simple for our resident Floridian Falcon you can mix lemonade and limeade together.

    Yeah, I think ChaCha's on the right track. Whiskey Sour is kinda like a whisky Margarita. I like sweet, so I'd start with 2 oz Crown, 3/4 oz lemon juice, 3/4 oz simple syrup. I'd also add egg white for texture, but that's not strictly necessary. Shake the hell out of it until it's frothy. If you did add egg white. rub lemon zest around the rim of the glass before serving.

    Or if you're in a hurry, DEATHxMACHINE's recipe is probably just as tasty.

    Hard to go wrong with a whiskey ginger with crown as well. Get a nice ginger beer, lots of ice, squeeze of lime, hard to beat.

    If you want a few other ingredients, another way to power through cocktail fodder is 1/4 oz Amaro, 1/4 oz simple or cherry syrup, and 2oz whiskey and stir (or shake or hell even blend) with ice.

    @famish99 I like the way you think. I would use 2 oz whiskey, 4 oz cane sugar cola (Coke or Pepsi), and .25 oz Fernet Branca or Avenra. Delicious over ice.
