View Full Version : Rye with food

Ralph's comment about rye being better with food than bourbon has sparked a thought. I think rye whiskey would be good with food, with meat and other dishes that suggest a hearty red wine. My suggestion would be to pour some rye into a wine glass with an equal amount of water. That would lower the proof into the 20 percent range, which is getting pretty close to wine or beer.
