easy cocktail recipes 13 superb rye drinks to try right now

I’m always amazed when people tell me they love bourbon but never drink rye. After all, these two cocktail cousins are so closely related that it can be difficult to tell them apart, depending on the mashbill.

A quick math lesson: If a whiskey is made up of 51% corn and 49% rye, it’s a bourbon. If you reverse those numbers, it’s a rye. Granted, most mashbills use much higher percentages for each, but the flavor profiles are often quite similar. There are spicy bourbons and plenty of sweet-ish ryes.

In general, I suppose I drink more bourbon in the summer and rye in the winter—but where’s the fun is that? A great rye cocktail works all year.

OLD FORESTER RYE SAZERAC

“Old Forester Rye makes a perfect base for the classic Sazerac due to its high proof and distinctive tasting notes. The proprietary mashbill, with its generous portion of malted barley (20%), establishes elements of magnolia, anise, and lemon—making for a cohesive landscape to build this classic cocktail upon.” —Jackie Zykan, master taster at Old Forester

Ingredients:

2 oz. Old Forester rye

0.5 oz. simple syrup

6 dashes Peychaud’s Bitters

1 barspoon absinthe

Lemon peel

Method: Rinse a chilled old-fashioned glass with the absinthe, add crushed ice, and set it aside. Stir the remaining ingredients over ice and set it aside. Discard the ice and any excess absinthe from the prepared glass, and strain the drink into the glass. Add the lemon peel for garnish.
