Rally Squirrel

Did you know that the real Rally Squirrel is now retired and living in his own personal elm tree in Cooperstown?  And I hear that in the evenings, after ‘socializing’ with the female squirrels and eating his nuts, he likes to enjoy his namesake cocktail.

This delicious cocktail was created by Stewart at Eclipse Bar in the Moonrise Hotel.  Now you, too, can enjoy The Rally Squirrel as you try to bury your own nuts.


1.5 oz RallyPoint Rye Whiskey
