Old Fashioned

Most of us are guilty of binge watching TV series

This past week, I found myself without a show to watch.  Oh, mercy me

On the recommendation of my friends, I started the show Mad Men which was based in the 60’s on Madison Avenue

EVERYONE had a cigarette in one hand and an Old Fashioned whiskey cocktail in the other.  The cigarette didn’t interest me, but the swanky cocktail did!

You’ll need your favorite whisky, bitters and simple syrup.  The traditional version uses a sugar cube for each cocktail but I substituted simple syrup

Add one teaspoon of simple syrup and 2 dashes of bitters to a glass.  Fill with ice and top with 2 ounces of whisky
