A product of America’s earliest saloons, Rock + Rye is a liqueur made from rye whiskey, rock candy syrup, fruit, and dried herbs. An early recipe appears in Harry Johnson’s Bartender’s Manual in 1888. Instead of rock candy, we sweeten ours using a spice-infused cherry syrup, adding dried cherries, oranges, and lemon verbena, then bottle age it to add depth and flavor. An early example of homemade infusions, this lost ingredient is a great place to start enjoying craft cocktails: it’s approachable but with a mountain of craft and history in it.
