So ladies, if you'd like to brush up on the domestic arts from years gone by, take a look through the goodies on Nifty Knick Knacks.
To begin the lesson let's try the classic cocktail - the Old Fashioned:
2 oz Blended WhiskeyDelicious!
1 teaspoon sugar
Few shakes of angostura bitters
2 or 3 tablespoons soda water
1 maraschino cherry and a little of its cherry juice
Combine the sugar cube, bitters and water in an old-fashioned glass. Muddle well, add blended whiskey, and stir. Add a twist of lemon peel and ice cubes. Add slices of orange and lemon and top with the cherry. Serve with a swizzle stick.
