The Story Behind The Rock and Ryzer

With New Year’s Eve upon us, you might be thinking about a way to keep yourself awake past midnight. This year, skip the Espresso Martini and whip up a Rock and Ryzer, developed by Philip Smith of The Family Jones. The best part? It’ll take you a quarter of the time. The cocktail combines hot coffee with The Family Jones’ own Rock and Rye, which provides notes of dried fruit and citrus, warming spices, and rock candy. When garnished with a bit of peppermint whipped cream, the combination is energizing and boozy, carrying just enough holiday cheer to carry you into the new year.


  • 3 ounces hot coffee
  • 1 ½ ounces The Family Jones Rock and Rye ready-to-pour cocktail
  • Atomized peppermint whipped cream


  1. Add the coffee and Rock and Rye to a mug and stir to combine.
  2. Top with atomized peppermint whipped cream and serve.
