Whiskey Wednesday: Jim Beam Rye

Whiskey Wednesday:  Jim Beam Rye

This week’s whiskey is Jim Beam® Rye.  Drier and spicier than its sweet Bourbon cousins, Rye adds character and depth to any whiskey cocktail. Pairs especially well with fruit flavors.  This whiskey is clean and spicy, with a peppery taste and a slight sweetness.  

While I enjoy this whiskey on its own, it also makes a great Manhattan!  

Jim Beam® Rye Manhattan
2 oz Jim Beam® Rye
1/2 oz sweet vermouth
dash of bitters
cherry for garnish

Chill a cocktail (martini) glass with ice.   In a mixing glass half filled with ice add whiskey, vermouth, and a dash of bitters.   Stir until well-chilled.  Dump the ice from the prepared glass and strain in the contents of the mixing glass.   Drop a cherry in for garnish and enjoy!
