I realize I haven't logged onto my blog for about 3 years. Yikes. Just doing a test drive today. I have been following David Lebovitz as he takes us on a journey through his new book Drinking French. This isn't one of his cocktails but one I felt like making today.
1 1/2 oz. rye whiskey
1 1/2 oz. fresh squeezed lemon juice
3/4 oz. simple syrup
Shake first 3 ingredients in a cocktail shaker half full of ice. Pour into a glass with new ice and garnish with a cherry.
