I created this cocktail with fellow co-worker Matt Bourgard at the Mockingbird, The Cottage 10, using Rittenhouse Overproof Rye. You may or may not have heard the term ‘A New York 5 is a cottage 10’ and I’m just going to leave it at that… Trust me this one’s a beaut.
2 medium sized Basil Leaves
0.75 oz Lemon Juice
0.75 oz Honey Syrup
2 oz Rittenhouse Overproof Rye
Cut a peach into small pieces and add to your tin with blueberries. Tear basil leaves and add to fruit. Muddle. Add lemon juice, honey syrup and Rye. Add ice and shake rigorously. Double strain into rocks glass with ice. Garnish with small basil leaf and blueberry boat. Enjoy.
