​Yesterday we met Tom Crowley, the esteemed bartender of the Cork and Cleaver who, 32 years later, is now mixing drinks at 1889 Saloon. Today he shares with us the recipe for his favorite drink, known simply as Tom's Drink.

"When I go out to the local watering holes, I don't even have to ask for this anymore," Crowley says. "They know it's what I'm having."

It's a cocktail that's easy-drinking, with delicate flavor yet appropriately boozy at the same time.

Get the recipe after the jump.

The ingredients:
1.5 oz. vodka
2 oz. 7up
1.5 oz. cranberry juice
1 ¼ oz. soda
1 wedge lime

How to make it:
Fill a glass with ice and pour each ingredient in. Stir. Sip. Enjoy.
