    I wanted to learn how to make old fashioned rock and rye whiskey with rock candy and fruits, can't find it on the shelf any more, not cocktails.

    I have a great Rock & Rye story... we would shovel snow for our neighbor in our small NJ town; this was in the late 50s. My brother was about 9 years old and I was a bit over 5. When we were done with the task we were invited into the neighbor's home and given a shot of Rock and Rye. The R&R at the time had fruit in the bottom of the bottle, which was amazing to us kids, but the warmth of that shot and the temporary dizziness was what made the experience something to remember all these years. We went back year after year to help them with their shoveling. No brain damage, at least I don't think so, but just a longing to find R&R like it was then.

    When I was a kid 50 years ago, my Mom would drink Rock n Rye, and occassionally let me have a taste.
