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!
