Caraway Rye Cocktail


Caraway-infused whiskey is delicious mixed with lemon juice and celery bitters in a cocktail.

  1. Ice
  2. 1 1/2 ounces Caraway-Infused Rye Whiskey
  3. 3/4 ounce fresh lemon juice
  4. 1/2 ounce simple syrup (see Note)
  5. 3 dashes celery bitters
  6. 1 1/2 ounces club soda
  7. 1 lemon wheel, for garnish
  1. In an ice-filled cocktail shaker, combine the caraway rye with the lemon juice, simple syrup and bitters. Stir with a bar spoon until well chilled, about 10 seconds. Strain the drink into an ice-filled rocks glass. Top with club soda and garnish with the lemon wheel.
Notes To make simple syrup, simmer 1/2 cup water with 1/2 cup granulated sugar, stirring frequently, until the sugar has dissolved. The simple syrup can be refrigerated in a covered jar for up to 1 month.
