What better advice for Father’s Day than Sage Advice? One of our great rye whiskey drinks!
With Father’s Day coming up next weekend, we decided to come up with a cocktail that would be sure to please Dad. We recently have been on a bit of a whiskey kick, and with us receiving a bottle of Templeton Rye from the folks at Templeton to promote, and we thought one of our great rye whiskey drinks would be just the thing to top off Father’s Day.

Rye Whiskey Cocktails
Templeton Rye is a reproduction of the famous recipe the Prohibition Era bootleggers in Templeton, Iowa shipped to Chicago and Al Capone, where it became known as the “Good Stuff.”
It soon filled the speakeasies from Chicago to New York and even as far west as San Fransisco where it is rumored that some bottles found their way into Capone’s jail cell on Alcatraz. In 2006, the Kerkhoff family released the legal version of the “Good Stuff” that soon became a highly sought after bottle.
Rye Whiskey Drinks
Distilled in Indiana but bottled and mixed in Templeton, Iowa by the descendants of the old bootleggers, Templeton Rye is a smooth drinking rye whiskey with hints of butterscotch, caramel and spice. If you want another cocktail with a great combo of bourbon and sage simple syrup, try the Smoked Cherry!
Ingredients Needed in the Sage Advice Cocktail?
- Rye Whiskey
- Sage Simple Syrup
- Lemon Juice
Rye Whiskey Cocktail Recipes
The Sage Advice uses the winning combination of rye and blackberries and adds a fresh sage syrup to bring a fragrant hint of herbaceous evergreen to add a sweet complexity. Similar to the classic whiskey sour, the addition of the blackberries and sage syrup dresses it up to make a drink that is manly but with a bit of a soft side just like dear old dad! Try out this greensaver Herb Keeper to help you make that sage syrup!
