Tonight's Cocktail - Honey Rye

Tonight for The Cocktail Hour, we'll be featuring the Honey Rye, a drink that, granted, I had never tried before I stumbled upon it's recipe in Bon Appetite. But it is delicious and therefore worth of TCH. I modify it by and mixing in actual honey (local, of course) instead of the liqueur, but you may not want to do that. The reason is separation. You have to stir the drink like a madman to get the honey to not be a big glob in the bottom of the glass and then it tends to re-globulize unless you pound it down. Make up your own mind.
1 oz rye whiskey
½ oz honey liqueur
dash or two orange bitters
Mix rye and liqueur in a rocks glass (with rocks) and stir. Add a dash or two of orange bitters, top with ginger ale, garnish with orange twist. DELISH!
