If you must mix, try about a 50-50 ratio of TR and lemon juice. Toss a sugar cube into the glass, and stir it until the cube dissolves. I got that recipe from the Templeton Rye website, and it's not bad. I tried it last weekend in KC with BV, and the results weren't the same. Rye whiskey has a different flavor than blended whiskey.

It depends if it is real Templeton or the stuff they charge taxes on? Real Templeton neat with a glass of water beside it. No Ice. The other is just average whiskey in my view so adding ice does not hurt the flavor profile that much. As an aside, I watched Atlas Shrugged part one last week and there was a bottle of the grocery store Templeton on the bar during the anniversary party.
Looks light on the rocks is the most common theme hear. I tried it on the rocks as well as with some 7 Up today. May also try it w/Pepsi if there's any left when I have a chance to go buy some Pepsi. Both ways I tried it today were good. On the rocks is definitely better for sipping slowly where adding the 7 Up made it go down alot quicker. I was always a Southern Comfort guy and would usually have w/some Pepsi or on the rocks. I know I know 2 completely different whiskeys that can't be compared but still was my preference.
Last time I had Templeton it was disgusting, tasted like I was drinking hawkeye. Friends of ours brought a bottle up on a fishing trip buried in the cooler, it FROZE. I have NEVER had whiskey freeze unless it was CHEAP. I've had the real stuff before it was mainstream and ohhh buddy is it good. Don't waste your money on Templeton anymore, try Cedar River. Templeton isn't even primarily made in Iowa anymore...
