Today’s Cocktail

The Old Fashioned

Here it is, the one every gentlemen should know how to make. The choice of the ever suave Don Draper. It’s a classic from Kentucky where it first appeared in the late 1800s. It’s a simple yet highly sophisticated recipe currently enjoying a revival.

Ingredients:
-2oz Whisky
-3 Dash Angostura Bitters
-1 Sugar Cube
-Fill Club Soda
-Orange Wheel
-Maraschino Cherry

Place sugar cube and bitters in glass and muddle. (Can add a little water if you’d like). Fill glass with whisky and club soda. Garnish with orange wheel and cherry.

Binging with Babish: Room Service from Mad Men [source]

Pre-order my first cookbook, Eat What You Watch: A Cleverly-Titled Romp Through the Fanciful Fêtes of Fiction!  Really it’s just called Eat What You Watch, but I should have called it that instead.

Mad Men continued AMC’s hot streak of well-acted, well-written, morally irreverent dramas with its sordid look at the lives of Madison Avenue’s top advertisers.  In an early episode, Roger Sterling attempts to woo America’s favorite mistress with a light room service lunch: Oysters Rockefeller, Beef Wellington, and Napoleons.  This week, blatantly disregard your cholesterol levels and fire up a Lucky Strike as we indulge in some hotel-room-hedonism with our silver fox boss.

This is how I respond to the ongoing “Friend zone” war that keeps ragging on, remember if you are actually a nice guy, you can understand that Women are Friends, not food.
