Tuna on Rye


March 29, 2011 (Day 2) — Tuna on Rye

Rye cocktails. Pure class.

This evening’s cocktail features a cocktail with strange name, but a delicious taste. Those are always the kinds of drinks that I like. Deceptively deceptive. Aaaaaaahhhhh, yeah.

Tuna on Rye

• 1 1/2 oz rye whiskey

• 1 oz sweet vermouth

• 2 oz ginger ale

Combine ingredients in a rocks glass filled with crushed ice.

Gross name. Great drink.

The ginger ale brightens the drink and completely changes the character of the cocktail. It has an almost citrus aftertaste, which is interesting when you consider that there’s nothing overtly citrus in the drink. It keeps the distinctive rye flavor throughout though.

Cheers!
