sips & whistles // whiskey revival

not sure about the rest of you, but it is officially summer here in texas. which means simple and refreshing cocktails become a staple at our house. we like to spend as much time as possible on our back porch with a few tunes to tap our feet to. so here is a little gem of a cocktail for those warm afternoons and my suggested musical pairing.

the whiskey revival

most whiskey revival recipes call for simple syrup but i think that makes it way too sweet. i personally like the taste of whiskey, so here’s how i like to enjoy mine:

1 ounce rye whiskey

3/4 ounce st. germain

1/2 ounce freshly squeezed lemon juice

1/4 ounce simple syrup (optional, to taste)

shake with ice for 15 seconds, strain into an old fashioned glass and enjoy with friends.

suggested album pairing: ryan adam’s gold
