Notice something different? That’s right. It was suggested by some followers on Twitter that I cater to the more manly drinks, so as to provide some balance. Far be it for me to deny the gents libations. They are the audience to which I cater, after all.
This week’s offering was a previous entry in the last incarnation of the site. However, since it went buh-bye, I don’t mind reposting it.
- ¾ oz. sweet vermouth
- 2½ oz. bourbon
- dash of angostura bitters
- maraschino cherry and twist of orange peel, for garnishing
Place the cherry in a rocks glass with ice. Pour the vermouth and bourbon. Add the dash of bitters, and stir gently to avoid clouding the drink. Take the orange peel and rub the edge on the rim of the glass, then twist the peel over the drink to release the oils, then discard.
All you need now is a nice, comfortable leather chair and your slippers, and you can relax 😉
