What I’m Drinking Now: Honey Rye

Posted by Reese On September - 8 - 2012

Looking for something light and refreshing one evening, Elisabeth stumbled upon this delicious combination of rye and honey liqueur in Bon Appetit.  The end result is refreshing while managing to maintain a nice level of complexity from the rye and orange bitters.  Definitely worth trying out if you’re looking for a simple late summer tipple.  Make sure you pick a bold rye though, it’ll make it all the more interesting (we chose Bulleit Rye).
