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?
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
Homemade Rock n Rye... genius! I think I have a spring project.
Me too, Rye on the rocks.
