I Cannot Tell a Lie
This drink was inspired by the story of George Washington and his cherry tree. George Washington was also one of the biggest producers of rye pre-prohibition, and since our Rock Creek White Whiskey is 100-percent rye, it ties in perfectly. The flavors are spot on for the holiday season. Cherry, maple and walnuts are fun holiday flavors that work well with a heavy meal or with a light appetizer platter. Photo by Liquorary.
