1 oz Roundstone Rye

Pecan, for garnish

*pecan syrup: In a small saucepan, combine ½ cup of brown sugar, ½ cup of water, and ¼ cup of pecans. Stir on low heat for about 10 minutes, making sure the syrup is combined, and there is a fragrance of pecans. Let cool, then pour into a blender or food processor. Blend for about 30 seconds, then strain through a strainer or cheese cloth.

Pumpkin Pie Rye
