Michter’s Détente

Seanan Forbes, Middle Branch, New York, NY

“I like Michter’s, but it was being a bit of a struggle for me at CITC. When this came together, I said, “Michter’s and I have arrived at a détente.” Jerry said, ‘That’s what you should name the drink.’ Of course, I was going to heed Jerry. A drink was named.”

Leaves from 2” stalk of rosemary

2 oz (60 ml) Michter’s US 1 Kentucky Straight Rye Whiskey
