Father’s Day is this weekend, and we think the day calls for whiskey. You can go the classic route and serve old fashioneds or manhattans, but this cocktail is a little lighter and perhaps more appropriate for that day drinking we all know you’ll be doing in honor of your dad.
2 oz. rye
1 oz. lemon juice
1 oz. orange juice
½ oz. simple syrup
½ oz. amaretto
Shake all ingredients together with ice and strain into an ice-filled highball glass. Garnish with a maraschino cherry.
We’re huge fans of Bulleit Rye and this recipe was created by the Bulleit team, so we chose to use that brand. I was fairly skeptical about the amaretto, but it actually works really well with the spiciness of the rye. The combination of spirits creates a smooth blend of sweetness and spice. The different juices smooth it out even more, making the anytimer incredibly easy to drink (and consequently, appropriately named). I know this is a bourbon blog, but if you used bourbon instead of rye, I think the concoction may lean toward saccharine.blog comments powered by Disqus
