How about a rye whisky that is all three of Good, Fast, and Cheap? I tinker with this, and you can too. Recipes for blending up your own whiskey are all over the internet, so as they say, “do your research” and then go to town. You even get to name it what you want…think of it like Open Source Whisky.



I like a simple recipe; the four ingredients are Black Velvet, George Dickel Rye 90 proof, Angostura Bitters, and Wright’s Hickory Liquid Smoke.

The latest bottle was:

500 cc Black Velvet
200 cc Rye
0.4 cc liquid smoke
0.8 cc bitters

Just mix it up in a bottle and let it sit for a day or two. I’ll update recipes here and I tweak them.
