Manly Drink of the Week

Posted by ArmedGeek on Sunday, November 25, 2012 in BOOZE!!, BOTW

The Old Fashioned is a damned fine cocktail. It is every bit the classic way to drink whiskey. There are roughly 10,000 different ways to make this drink, but any way that includes muddling an orange slice and a cherry is doing it wrong. Pretty much any other way is correct.

Now I hesitate to post this video because of who is in it…

Say what you will about Rachel Maddow (and I’d agree) but the dude* does know how to fix a drink.

* heh.

    other thought(s) --
    - madcow seems to really like saying “cocktail”
    - is that muddler a strap on style

    2) It’s SUNDAY which in the order of H&B things, means political ranting.

    iii) Maddow?? Seriously??

    jam2 stole all of my good lines.

    So you need a muddler for a sugar cube? Must be a helluva cube.

    Looks a delightful beverage. Even a broken clock is right twice a day.
