Pennington's Strawberry Rye Whiskey is a locally-made Nashville booze that released earlier this year and has already grown to be distributed in Illinois, South Carolina, Georgia and Michigan. It's got the spice of the real rye whiskey, but also juicy all-natural strawberry flavors. Spicy and sweet. Hard and soft. Kinda like a mullet but much tastier.
There's probably more folks taking shots of Pennington's Strawberry Rye more than those making cocktails with it, but you'd be surprised how versatile it can be when it comes to mixing.
Our 3st of the Month members had the opportunity to try Pennington's at our August kick-off event and we've heard quite a few of them ask for this recipe. So, here you go folks...ask and you will receive. It's a pretty easy one, that's for sure!
1.5 oz Pennington's Strawberry Rye Whiskey
2 dashes aromatic bitters
pinch fresh-ground black pepper
Place ice in your glass, add all ingredients and give it a swirl. See, we told you that was easy.
