Muddled “New” Old Fashioned

With the final season of Madman soon approaching… an upgrade to the old fashioned classic cocktail seemed only apropos, with thanks to Bill Heck’s recipe (Bon Appetit). I substituted granulated sugar for the cubes… turned out...

Goombay Smash

Bringing the Bahamas home.  Pineapple, coconut and rum guarantee a mini-vacation in the comfort of your own living room.
