Tuesday's Drink is Full of Grace...

Tuesday, Tuesday, more day closer to the weekend. It is not yet time for the crazy shots, nothing too complicated, and definitely not anything with a flame. Tuesday calls for a classic cocktail, a true grown up concoction. 

Classic Old Fashioned

Getting Started:

2 oz. Bourbon 
(Suggestion: Bulliet Rye or Knob Creek)
2 dashes of Bitters

Sugar cube

Splash of water

2 Cherries
(Take it up a notch and use brandied cherries!)

Orange twist

In the bottom of glass, preferably an old fashioned glass or a rocks glass, place your sugar cube, water and bitters, then add your cherries and orange twist, commence muddling. (Definition: To muddle is to combine ingredients, usually in the bottom of a mixing glass, by pressing them with a muddle before adding the majority of the liquid ingredients.) No muddle, no biggie...use a wooden spoon, the back of a regular spoon, the handle of a spatula, a chopstick, get creative! We are so close...fill the glass with ice, and top with the bourbon of your choice. Enjoy
