The Old Fashioned

The Old Fashioned

On my mission to fulfill Death&Co’s mandate that every good at-home bartender know the Top Ten cocktails listed in our previous post, I came across this how-to for the Old Fashioned by the fabulous Leah & Mary from fabulousonabudget.com.

These ladies know how to get up to no good and share their expertise in fabulously dramatized fashion. Check it out:

Today we pay tribute to the classic Old Fashioned. It’s a Fabulous whiskey drink that may be the first drink to ever be called a cocktail. It’s roots date back to the early 1800′s! As with many cocktails, there are many variations, but we quite like this one.

Ever have one of those days you just need cocktail?

Ingredients:

  • 3 dashes of Orange Bitters
  • 2 oz. Bourbon or Rye
  • Orange Zest
  • Sugar Cube
  • Ice Cube

1. Put a sugar cube (or 2 if you’re a baby like me!) in the bottom of your glass. Douse with 3 dashes of Orange Bitters.

2. Muddle the sugar cube until it’s good and sandy.

3. Add 2 oz. of whiskey (any bourbon will do!)

4. Stir it up!

5. Add your ice. Purists find this appalling and prefer a splash of water, but we quite like the chilled effect. What can I say? I’m easing into whiskey.

6. Rim your glass with your orange zest.

7. Give your peel a little twist, zesting the fruit essence into your drink.

8. Drop your peel in & Voila! Drink up.

Most of those who know me know that I am a Pinterest A-D-D-I-C-T. So over the weekend, I took a few of my fave sayings from Pinterest and worked them in with my collection of patterns and my FAB selection of mom’s vintage photos to make what I think are some pretty darn cute coasters: […]

Ze Perfect Beer Connoisseur Set

Ze Perfect Beer Connoisseur Set
Spiegelau‘s new Beer Connoisseur Kit is an instant classic. Whether it’s for a host/hostess gift, a holiday gift for that special beer drinker in your life or for you, you’re not likely to find a simpler and more elegant set of crystalline beer glasses — and for just $49.

Lager is one of the most common beers, and that’s why most people serve all beers in lager-friendly pint glasses. However, the shape of the glass greatly affects the experience of a beer’s aroma and flavor, and not all beers are made alike. If you consider the way the taste buds are arranged on the tongue, it makes sense that the way a beer flows into the mouth will affect the taste. The shape of the glass determines that flow, and there is no one-glass-fits-all for beer.

The kit features, from left to right, Spiegelau’s new Tall Pilsner Glass, Wheat Beer Glass, a Lager Glass (pint glass) and a Stemmed Pilsner Glass, ensuring that you always serve your beer in a shape conducive to expressing the beer’s optimum flavor.

All the glasses are German-made and dishwasher-safe. If presenting someone with the Beer Connoisseur Kit as a gift, we recommend also gifting them with four imported beers ideal for the glasses, like a Bohemian-style pilsner for the Tall Pilsner Glass, a wheat (or “weizen”) beer, an esoteric lager and a highly-fermented, intense pilsner for the stemmed glass.
