A twist on a drink special
Every night, the restaurant where I work has a drink special--an entirely new cocktail. The other night, the bartenders came up with something they called the Always in Fashion (a take on the Old Fashioned) with rye, ginger simple syrup, and cranberry bitters.
"Whoa," I thought, "I could make that at home!"
Turned out I didn't have any cranberry bitters, but I did have ginger simple syrup. So I made the drink with peach bitters. It was peachy.
2 oz rye
1/2 oz ginger simple syrup
2 dashes peach (or cranberry) bitters
Mix and serve neat.
