It was almost 60 degrees today in Chicago. We haven't felt that kind of weather in an uncountable number of days! It'll be back to below freezing again within a day or so, but until then let's celebrate with a spring drank.
Normally whiskey is my wintertime drink of choice, but the addition of St Germaine and lemon take this cold-weather liquor to a warm(er)-weather cocktail.
Happy Spring! Can't wait until this weather stays and I can walk around without a coat once more.
Spring whiskey (rye) cocktail
Feel free to reduce the amount of lemon juice in this drink. It was quite strong, but I loved it! Then again, I like eating lemons straight up...
For ~ 1.5 cocktails in my awesome glasses, we used ~ 3 oz whiskey, 2 oz St. Germain, and 2 oz lemon juice) Scale up/down depending on how difficult your work week was! :)
1.5 - 2 parts rye whiskey (3 - 3.5 oz)
1 part St. Germain (2 oz)
1 part lemon juice (2 oz)
- Put ingredients in shaker filled with ice.
