SNOB’s 30 Day Aged Rock & Rye
You’ve heard the words “good things take time,” but never has the phrase been so teasingly appropriate as SNOB’s 30 Day Aged Rock & Rye. Straight from the newly opened rooftop restaurant atop Hotel Americano in New York City, the classic rock and rye cocktail drink gets a holiday twist with essentials spices that—after almost a month of marinating with the drink’s other goodies—perfectly balance out the rye whiskey, citrus, sugar, and bitters.
Batched ingredients (to be placed a large mason jar for 30 days)
- 1.25 liters of Rittenhouse Rye whiskey
- 5 oz. of Luxardo Cherry Sangue Morlacco liqueur
- 10 oz. of pure rock candy sugar
- 3 meyer lemons sliced in wheels
