A Cool Drink For a Hot Day

This drink I got out of a book and to be honest I had never heard of it but it sort of makes drinking any kind of Scotch ( in this case not your expensive kind ) with Coke acceptable. At least if you drink Scotch with anything fizzy in other words.

A Whiskey Cola

The contents are

2 oz Scotch
1/2 oz Curacao  ( a liqueur that has an orange like flavour and bitter to taste)
1/2 oz Lemon Juice
2 dashes Angostura Bitters
Crushed ice
Coke or Cola
Orange Peel Garnish

Mix all the ingredients in a glass. Add crushed ice in the glass and fill with Coke.
Add the orange peel and serve with a swizzle stick.

I would use the highball glass for this or maybe one of those long tall glasses for appearance and use a straw for each.
