Cocktail Friday: The Hummingbird, A Rye Whiskey Martini
Every good southerner loves whiskey! Today’s Cocktail Friday libation is a slightly sweet and beautifully curious rye whiskey martini you’ll want to linger over called The Hummingbird
A few weeks ago, I was shaking pre-dinner cocktails for my sister and her hubs (who loves old fashioneds). I love rye whiskey and wanted to sip on something well balanced, not too sweet, not too strong, but just right. A cocktail you don’t want to rush drinking. Something you can sip, and linger, that will intrigue you. This is it! The Hummingbird will literally have you humming… and not just from the booze but from how delicious and delicate it is. I shake up one of my favorite whiskeys, Southern Rye Whiskey, a slightly spicy whiskey with a mellow sweet finish that has been aged in charred oak barrels. Along with some other great bar gems, it blends into a killer martini. Poised in a classic coupe glass, it’s a rye whiskey cocktail you’ll want to show off to your friends and family at your next dinner party. Delicious!
