Featured Craft Cocktail – Strong Hold

Strong Hold

The Strong Hold Cocktail has been my go-to all summer. All of my favorite expressions of a balanced cocktail are showcased in this drink. The bonded rye whiskey is spicy and rich while the Aperol softens the heat with bitter sweet rhubarb. Then, the sweet is countered by fresh lemon juice lending to a bright crisp finish. The Strong Hold is a simple cocktail for the not-so-simple consumer.
