Here’s another great tall drink for a hot, hot day. We enjoyed this one on a day when Hermes smacked up against 92.
This borrows heavily from the Jack classic, Lynchburg Lemonade, but it’s a homemade version with no Sprite or sour mix or any of that other crap. (I’m calling this “Philly” because of the style of the whiskey, not because of where it’s currently distilled.)
- 2 oz. Rittenhouse bonded rye
- 1 oz. lemon juice (although a lemon-lime mix might be better)
- 1/2 oz. simple syrup
Technique: Shake over ice and strain into a glass. Top with seltzer or club soda and stir gently.
