This week is slowly… no, quickly getting away from me. No excuse for it save that I get overwhelmed by projects that get under my skin, screaming to be done.
This week’s offering is a very old cocktail, hailing back to the 1880’s or so. Being an old-fashioned gal myself, I like to dig for forgotten drinks and try to give them a bit of limelight.
- 1½ oz. brandy
- ¾ oz. maraschino liqueur
- dash of bitters
Pour each ingredient in order into an old fashioned rocks glass, and swirl gently. I like this one on the rocks, but it is best at room temperature. There is more heat and the sweetness of the liqueur lingers. It’s a good one to enjoy sitting by a fire 😉
