This was a surprisingly wonderful drink! The ingredients are so simple that I wasn’t expecting the flavors to come together and be so much greater than the sum of their parts. There’s a rich sweetness, a bit of sour, just a hint of freshness from the mint, and the mellow spiciness of the rye just pulling it all together. I definitely recommend giving this cocktail a try, especially as we move into summer: the mint helps make this a great sipper for the warmer weather.
With so many great summer drinks including mint in the recipe, I decided to try to cultivate my own this year.
