i blame two people. first my great friend and fellow blogger, chip mortimer. he makes a mean cocktail and first introduced me to bourbon + ginger beer last summer. it is one of the most refreshing drinks ever. ever. love it so, so much - especially when b'more gets hot and oh-so-humid.
second culprit, nelson carey, owner of grand cru. [my fave bar in charm city.] they make the '1792 old fashioned' with bourbon, bitters, sugar, orange and...these amazing, amazing cherries ($20/jar - sadly, not in my home drinks budget...) muddled drink heaven.
wanna learn how to make an old fashioned? watch this video.
do you have a favorite drinky drink? what's your bourbon of choice? mine is bulleit -yummmm.
enjoy. responsibly, please.
