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.
What makes Sagamore Spirit different?
- Tantalizing aroma- this whiskey gives you a big old hug with just one sniff with complex and captivating aromas of warm cinnamon, vanilla bean, honey, and nutmeg.
- Refined palate- Smooth mouth-feel, with caramel and molasses up front and peppery baking spices on the end.
- Rich color- Beautiful bonfire glow with amber with gold undertones.
- Distinctive Finish- A refreshing and zesty rye spiciness without making the “pucker face”.
Rye is a grass that is a member of the wheat family and closely related to barley. It can be processed into grain for things like whiskey or used as a cover crop or a forage crop for livestock.
When it is harvested as a grain, it is used in things like rye flour to then be used in bread and crackers and it can also then be used to make beer, some vodkas, some whiskey, and obviously rye whiskey.
To be 100% honest, I am not the cocktail type. I can generally be found ordering a glass of wine or a nice sour beer. But this Spiced Whiskey and other cocktails made from Sagamore aren’t too sweet and also not too liquery.
Balanced and great for sipping, which makes them right up my alley and the perfect party cocktail.
