Old Fashioned

EASY POURING

:

OLD FASHIONED

 

Keeping it simple this week. This any season drink is best introduced when the weather's getting colder. Here we have it, the Old Fashioned.

_________

RYE

Calling as ever for whiskey. Just stick with something peated, a little smoke. An even keeled spirit does well for this taste focused drink.

CLUB SODA

Break up the madness. The fizz cuts through the alcohol and heightens the taste while bubbles make for a refreshing sensation.

BITTERS

Angostura, standard.

SUGAR CUBE

A little sweet for the soul. This is, after all, a strong jawed cocktail. 

_________

AND SERVE...

Sugar and bitters into the neat glass (cherry or orange peel as well if you like), and beat them into a paste. Add the whiskey, a spit of club soda, and ice to stir and enjoy.

  • 2 parts rye (whiskey)

  • 1 part club soda

  • sugar cube (discretionary)

  • bitters (discretionary)

________

ALWAYS DRINK RESPONSIBLY.
