IMG_20140422_114745

OK say sooo many times while working, people will pick a gin based special over a whiskey special. Why? “Whiskey during the day… I have to go back to the office. (fake giggle) Given this irrational justification. I have designed a cocktail that wraps whisky’s beautiful barrel flavors with a light essence perfect for day time.

 1.5 oz preferred rye whiskey

1 strawberry

3 blueberries

.5 oz honey simple syrup (3 Honey: 1 water)

2 drops cardamom tincutre

In mixing tin muddle fruit , cardamom tincture and honey simple. Add rye whiskey and ice, shake and dirty dump (same ice from shake) into a red wine glass. Add lemon wheels for garnish. YUM!
