Cocktail Recipes Rye Whiskey

Southland Sipper: Strawberry, Rye, Benedictine, Lemon

Southland Sipper: Rye, Strawberry, Benedictine

There are only a few more weeks of hot summer nights sitting on the balcony here in NYC (???) so feel like cocktails need to be just right to savor this last bit of warm weather. One of my favorite things about Julie Reiner’s cocktail book “The Craft Cocktail Party” is that the book is divided by season and holiday. Found the perfect drink that hit the spot for the beginning of summer’s end.
