    How do you drink your Templeton?

    Getting ready to crack open my first bottle ever of Templeton Rye (was going to for game last night but my nerves and excitement for the game made me forget I even had it). Anyhow, what do you think is the best way to drink it... I've heard with 7 Up and straigth on ice. Any other suggestions for CyclONE Nation?

    Straigth on ice sounds awesome. Whatever that means.

    Seriously though, drink it like you would any other rye. I prefer it on the rocks.

    Proofreading obviously isn't my strong point!

    Re: How do you drink your Templeton?

    Just drink it on the rocks. It's smooth enough that you can sip on it all night without a burn.

    First one ever? Straight.

    Then Templeton (still straight) and Guinness.

    If you have to have it on the rocks, the above is right: keep those cubes to a minimum.

    Re: How do you drink your Templeton?

    If you want to experience the flavor, on the rocks (not many ice cubes) or neat. I wouldn't mix it with anything but maybe a touch or so of water.

    I've heard people who mix with Soda's, I won't condemn that, but you could honestly get the same flavor as a whiskey and 7 with a lot less expensive bottle. I just think if you mix whiskey and soda, you don't really like the taste of whiskey all that much.

    Re: How do you drink your Templeton?

    I go about 1/2 and 1/2 with cold cola. Don't want to be bouncing off the walls late into the night. I usually just drink BV, but will switch to Templeton on special occaions (such as tomorrow night).

    Never had it. But I did read the Templeton Rye display at the Des Moines International Airport.

    I live in WYOMING so I can't drink it. However Wyoming Whiskey (which is 15 miles from me) will start bottling in December. :)

    My mouth, but I guess I could try the IV.

    Re: How do you drink your Templeton?

    you have to drink it either 'Neat' or 'On the Rocks'.

    No alternatives, do NOT mix it!
