One of the great myths about writers is that we’re poor, every single one of us. Not true. But in an economic climate like the one we’re facing now, it’s time to do as our grandparents did. It’s time to save more than we earn. Call it an old fashioned idea whose time has come again.
How about we have a drink to celebrate? Ladies and gentlemen, please meet The Old Fashioned:
4.0 cl. Bourbon, Scotch or Rye whiskey
1 sugar cube
2 dashes Angostura bitters
1 splash soda water
DIRECTIONS: Place sugar cube in old fashioned glass and saturate with bitter, add a dash of soda water. Muddle until dissolved. Fill the glass with ice cubes and add whiskey. Garnish with orange slice, lemon twist and two maraschino cherries.
