M. O. Walsh’s knockout novel, My Sunshine Away, reads like a haunting bedtime story for adults. The mystery surrounding a long ago crime that rocked suburban Baton Rouge unspools as the pages turn. Whiskey and Peychaud’s bitters evoke the South in this cocktail that’s made for sipping.
2 oz. Rye Whiskey
3 dashes Peychaud’s bitters
1 tsp. honey syrup
Splash of Jägermeister
Combine whiskey, bitters, and honey syrup - stir with ice. In a chilled glass, swirl the Jägermeister to coat the inside - discard the excess. Add whiskey mixture. Twist lemon peel over the drink. Garnish with Peychaud’s-dashed honeycomb.
