Try This: Bartender Charles Steadman's "Ginger in the Rye" Cocktail Recipe

Rye is one of those spirits that took a back seat for decades. A prohibition favorite, for ages the whiskey was solely designated to old men sitting in smoke-filled bars. 

Like all things fashionable the former 'out' whiskey, has made its comeback. And quite frankly, we're pretty damned pleased about the the new 'in' trend. With that, we asked partner/bartender Charles Steadman of Lantana Jack's Bar and Grill to divulge one of his favorite rye recipes: the Ginger in the Rye.
