#DOTW: Springtime Old Fashioned

Yessssss, springtime is slowly revealing itself. Even though most of us are cooped up inside due to the Coronavirus, we can still experience this whiff of new beginnings. Even though we are social distancing, we can still sit in our yards, on our stoops, balconies, whatever you use to get some fresh air while relaxing. I heard liquor sales are though the roof in this country, and I can see why. Working from home while the kids run around, home schooling, just really sitting inside with nothing to do, can drive a person to wanna have a sip of something. So, here’s an easy recipe, just in case you are looking for something new!

What you’ll need:

  • 2 1/2 oz Knob Creek (or quality Bourbon of your choice)
  • 1/2 oz St. Germain
  • 2 – 3 dashes Angostura Bitter
  • strip of lemon zest

This is a very simple cocktail, so just fill a rocks or cocktail glass with ice, then add ingredients. Stir gently, then twist the lemon zest over the cocktail, and enjoy!

Cheers and stay safe!

Hello there, fellow foodies! My name is Erica, I was born and raised in Germany, and moved to the US, New York City to be exact, in July of 1987. I have worked most of my time here in the Big Apple as a bartender, but my true love is food. I cook just about every day, I search for good food everywhere, and pretty much always find it. I don't consider myself a food critic, I don't have the culinary background for that kind of expertise. I do however know good food, good chefs and good restaurants. I report back about my culinary adventures, and I choose to leave out my unsatisfactory experiences. We have enough negativity in our daily lives, I don't want to add to that. All the recipes in my FROM MY KITCHEN and DOTW blogs are cooked and prepared by me. All pictures are taken by me. I don't always eat everything you see in my pictures, but you bet your buns, I do try everything. Last but not least, you should know that I am a huge Top Chef fan. I have never missed an episode of the Bravo TV show. I have at this point visited almost 20 restaurants run by Top Chef contestants, and I'm continuously impressed by their skill, drive and passion. So I will continue to seek them out, and I hope you join me in my journey!
