The “Rock & Rye” is a drink with roots dating back to 1850, where barkeeps poured a shot of rye and customers added their own rock candy. The result? A drink very much like an Old Fashioned – one that not only tasted good, but soon made its way to pharmacies, where it was used to treat coughs, colds, asthma, and a variety of other ailments. Today, you can still get your hands on this uniquely classic drink, in the form of Hochstadter’s Slow & Low Rock and Rye ($29). Made from a blend of aged rye whiskies, 100% raw local honey and air-dried Florida naval oranges (among other things), Hochstadter’s Slow & Low Rock and Rye comes perfectly mixed and ready to drink straight out of the bottle, ensuring you’re drinking your Rock & Rye exactly like your grandpappy’s grandpappy drank his.
