One tip you can take with any cocktail is to put the straw near a sprig of fresh herbs, like rosemary in a Holiday Whiskey Fizz. Some say we “eat with our nose” and placing an aromatic near the straw where your nose will be when you take a sip, making the best of our sense of taste and smell.
Sagamore Spirit is Baltimore’s own rye whiskey, made on a local farm with pure and naturally filtered spring water, fed from a limestone aquifer. It is quickly becoming the locals choice for straight whiskey and also creative cocktails.
