Springtime cocktail

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.

Buen Provecho,

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.
  • Shake shake shake shake shake your shaker.
  • Strain into glass and enjoy!
