A Taste of Fall with Catskill Provisions New York Honey Rye Whiskey
When I think of honey, that adorable chubby bear we grew up with comes to mind. I wanted to make a simple, yummy cocktail that is super refreshing with a sweet cherry to finish it. It features the flavors of fall but can be enjoyed all year round and will remind you of that cute little bear we love.
