Call Me Old-Fashioned...



And now, something to drink! After all, you must be parched. Let's go with the always-delicious, classic, and amazing Old-Fashioned. I was inspired to learn how to concoct the perfect one after watching Ryan Gosling knocking 'em back in "Crazy, Stupid, Love." I know, I know, Ryan Gosling? That's so 2011. But, I did think it would make the perfect winter cocktail for you all to try. Girls, you'll love it for its unexpectedly sweet, soothing taste.

Recipe adapted from (where else) Esquire
Sugar cube
Bitters 
Basil Hayden's (a light, smooth bourbon whiskey and my favorite); buy it here.
Club soda
Orange peel

Place sugar cube in tumbler. Add three drops of bitters and then a splash of club soda. Crush sugar cube with back of spoon until dissolved. Add a couple of ice cubes. Pour shot of bourbon whiskey and add orange peel for garnish.

Oh My God, It's Back Again


Backstreet's back...all right!

Okay, not really, but I'm here and have decided to rekindle the romance by asking for your forgiveness after a long pause.

But let's not get too schmaltzy. So, without further ado, here's what I've been obsessing over the last few months. 

Start ogling...it'll help us bond again. I promise.
