The very beginning of the fall season is my inspiration for creating this cocktail. The weather isn’t quite cold yet, but you can start to see subtle changes, like the first turned leaf. It’s the beginning of a beautiful season. I chose a North Carolina Rye that happens to be named perfectly for this occasion—Turning Point Rye is incredibly suited to pair with the intensely silky flavor of Bärenjäger, and parallels the subtle, yet distinct change in the season.
