Not Really Old Fashioned 

I found an awesome wooden bar in Greenpoint this summer (bed bugs, I know) and keep telling myself it’s time to learn how to make some real cocktails. And serve them, at my bar. Like the kind I have at The Drink or at Brooklyn Social… or pretty much any other place that doesn’t serve cheeseballs. Anyway, I bought myself some bitters and rye and set to making an old fashioned. This is what happened instead. 3 oz Rye Whiskey (I love Bulleit!)Juice of 1/2 Orange3-4 splashes of bittersRaw sugarSoda waterCoat the rim of a glass with orange and roll in sugar. In a shaker with ice, add rye, orange juice, bitters and a splash of soda water. Shake with vigor. Strain into sugared glass and serve cold (if you’re fancy, use one of those giant ice cubes).
If you’d like to learn how to make a real old fashioned.. try somewhere else.
