An Old Fashioned Revival

Maybe it is withdrawal from Mad Men's long hiatus or the rise of the career mixologist, but the Old Fashioned is back. Looking to serve a classic cocktail at your next summer soiree? Here is a list of the ingredients needed to serve up a stylish and modern twist on the Old Fashioned.
The Recipe
2 oz. Bourbon
3 dashes Angostura Bitters
1 tsp. bar sugar
1 twist of lemon peel
Splash of water or soda
At the bottom of the glass muddle the sugar, and Angostura Bitters with a splash of soda. Add the Bourbon, ice and fill with soda. Garnish with the lemon peel.
1. There is nothing more classic than the Baccarat Harmonie collection to serve up this quintessential drink.
2. John Derian's decoupage coasters are quite classy.
3. The key to the decoration of the Old Fashioned is the perfect lemon twist. Peel the perfect lemon with the Rosle citrus peeling knife
4. Bigger is better when it comes to ice cubes and the King Cube silicon trays can't be beat.
5. Angostura Bitters and Knob Creek Bourbon
