Over the years...


  • 1 oz. Rye Whiskey
  • 1 oz. Apple Brandy
  • 1 brown sugar cube
  • 4 dashes Orange Bitters
  • Orange peel for garnish

Takes 5 minutes. Serves One.

Last night, I was introduced to this lovely cocktail by a talented bartender at a speakeasy in Long Beach. It was conceived in New York's Little Branch bar in 2007, and is a riff on the classic Old Fashioned cocktail.

Start by dropping four dashes of orange bitters on top of the brown sugar cube, and muddle with orange peel. Then, add one ounce each of Rye Whiskey and Apple Brandy, stir with ice and serve with an orange peel garnish.

Enjoying my first "American Trilogy" cocktail. I'll toss up a recipe tomorrow!

Hip hop, Easter is almost here!

After a very long, productive, and challenging day, I'm cuddling with my beautiful daughter. Life is good.

It's LOST night people.
