Netflicks…bit of a social killer, but I can’t help it. Plus, this summer’s weather is off to a slow start and so I found myself totally hooked on Heisenberg…er Breaking Bad. Beware, this show is totally addictive, “bitch!” I’m now jonesing for the start of Season 5 (July 15 on AMC).
The other Netflicks pop culture tv phenom, Mad Men recently captured my attention and promted me to order my first ‘Old-Fashioned’ at the Vancouver Minglers, ‘Summer is Afoot!’ biz social, at The Granville Room (06.21.12). Wow!…pure cocktail perfection!
- 1 sugar cube
- 3 dashes Angostura bitters
- splash of club soda
- 2 ounces bourbon (or rye whisky)
Place the sugar cube (or 1/2 teaspoon loose sugar) in an Old-Fashioned glass. Wet it down with 2 or 3 dashes of Angostura bitters and a short splash of water or club soda. Crush the sugar with a wooden muddler, chopstick, strong spoon, lipstick, cartridge case, whatever. Rotate the glass so that the sugar grains and bitters give it a lining. Add a large ice cube. Pour in the bourbon (or rye). Serve with a stirring rod & add a lemon peel.
