not sure about the rest of you, but it is officially summer here in texas. which means simple and refreshing cocktails become a staple at our house. we like to spend as much time as possible on our back porch with a few tunes to tap our feet to. so here is a little gem of a cocktail for those warm afternoons and our suggested musical pairing.
the whiskey revival
most whiskey revival cocktail recipes call for simple syrup but i think that makes it way too sweet. i personally like the taste of whiskey, so here’s how i like to enjoy mine: 1 ounce rye whiskey 3/4 ounce st. germain 1/2 ounce freshly squeezed lemon juice 1/4 ounce simple syrup (optional, to taste) shake with ice for 15 seconds, strain into an old fashioned glass and enjoy with friends.
