    Re: Home made rock and rye

    Never made mine. It's on the 'to do' list, but may not get done until winter 2013-2014.....

    ethangsmith, did you end up making yours back when you started the thread? How did it turn out?
    If you have anything Michter's or Pennco and would like to sell it or share it with me, please let me know.

    Re: Home made rock and rye

    I cracked into my rock and rye last night. All the sugar was dissolved so i figured it was ready. Wow, this stuff is good. I'm not really a cocktail person, but I could see myself drinking these all night. It's funny that I've never seen this in a bar because it would make the mixologist look very good in a "there's no way i could make this at home" way (which you can, but it tastes different enough from a normal mixed drink that you'd think you couldn't). All the flavors are well integrated. I can taste the citrus and spices, lots of cinnamon (might need to cut down on it for balance), and sweet and syrupy goodness. I'm hoping to get sick by Monday so I can skip work and put this old time remedy to an all day test.

    way to go, compliance. Do you think the raw sugar added much in the way of flavor? are you keeping the mix in the fridge?

    You mean compared to refined sugar? Can't say really since I've never made another batch with anything else. I generally like raw sugars better because they have a little extra flavor, kind of a step towards brown sugar. I can't pick it out in the drink but using the raw certainly didn't hurt, it tastes fantastic :P. Maple syrup might be another interesting sugar to mix in the recipe.

    Re: Home made rock and rye

    Ok, I am going to have to make a batch of this. I would imagine this might be a good summer drink, not sure why I think that though.

    Best regards, Tony

    I can tell you it tastes great on the rocks. That's been my preparation of choice recently.
