What Whiskey to Use

I used a rye whiskey in this cocktail because I like the bite in rye whiskey and I wanted to balance the sweetness of this drink. Rye whiskey is made with a rye mash which makes it dryer, more intense, and a little spicy. Bourbon whiskey is made with a corn mash so it tends to be sweeter. That being said, you can use any whiskey you like and this drink will be delicious.

What are Tiki Bitters?

Tiki bitters are a blend of spices to add an enhanced flavor to your tropical drinks. It has cinnamon, allspice, ginger, citrus peel, and cardamom to name a few ingredients. Tiki bitters will balance a typically sweet tropical drink without overwhelming it.
