Friday Feeling #11

Old Fashioned

Seeing as the entire world and his wife seem to be loving off Mad Men at the moment – from a backup for pseudo-feminist statements of empowerment by MPs to style inspiration – I thought I’d include this ode to Don Draper’s favourite tipple. If only you could still smoke indoors…

1 sugar cube
3 dashes Angostura bitters
club soda
2 ounces rye whisky

Place the sugar cube (or 1/2 teaspoon loose sugar) in an Old-Fashioned glass. Wet it down with 2 or 3 dashes of Angostura bitters and a short splash of water or club soda. Crush the sugar with a wooden muddler, chopstick, strong spoon, lipstick, cartridge case, whatever. Rotate the glass so that the sugar grains and bitters give it a lining. Add a large ice cube. Pour in the rye (or bourbon). Serve with a stirring rod.
