So, I must tell you, Dad has a new favorite drink. It's called Rye and Rose and it goes like this.
Rye and Rose
Equal parts Rye Whiskey, freshly-squeezed lemon juice, freshly-squeezed lime juice, and rosemary-infused simple syrup.
If you're a measuring kind of person, I'd say one overflowing large jigger of each.
Advance Prep: Combine equal parts water and sugar to make the simple syrup. Bring to a boil and then simmer until a nice syrupy consistency. Let cool and then pour in a jar with several sprigs of rosemary (be generous). Place the jar in your frig and let the infusing begin. The syrup should infuse for a least a few days before use.
Combine ingredients with ice in a cocktail shaker, shake and pour into sugar-rimmed glass.
Now, wait, don't drink it yet. It isn't quite ready.
Drop one egg white into your cocktail shaker and shake vigorously until frothy. Pour frothy egg white evenly over the surface of your cocktail,
Garnish with a sprig of fresh rosemary and three cherries on a skewer.
Everything is all better now!
