The Story Behind The Rye for Breakfast Martini
Good rye whiskey is one of my favorite foundations for cocktails, as it contributes spice and warmth. With a minimalist base, this cocktail can be as versatile as you’ll allow it. Sub in a favored fruit for the jam or marmalade, swap rye whiskey for bourbon — try whatever it takes to make it yours. Each time you experiment, you can create a whole new cocktail, and that’s part of the fun. If you’re not having fun, what’s the point?
