very easy
Makes 1 drink


1 ½ oz
dark rye whisky 
45 mL
¾ oz
lemon juice 
23 mL
¾ oz
maple syrup 
23 mL
3 oz
ginger beer
90 mL
ice cubes 
1 oz
black cherry juice (for drizzling on top at the end) 
30 mL
large sprig of thyme (for garnish) 


Step 1

Combine whisky, lemon juice, maple syrup, ginger beer and ice cubes in a blender and mix on medium speed for 60 seconds or until smooth—but not for so long that it liquifies.

Step 2

Pour into a small wine glass and drizzle the black cherry juice over top, so that it seeps through the slush to the base.

Step 3

Garnish with full branch of fresh thyme clipped to the glass.


Zero-proof it: Omit the whisky and use an extra ounce-and-a-half of ginger beer for a total of three ounces.
