With the chocolate tones and breaded flavors in the Balcones Rye I want to compliment the cocktail with a low brow meets high brow version of a s’more.
The name of the cocktail is inspired by the 25th anniversary of “Sand Lot” and the concept of someone trying a spirit forward s’more for the first time… just as “Smalls” tired his first s’more in the movie of reference.
