Last Sunday I went to a celebration for some friends who'd wed in a private ceremony on Friday. Before hitting the par-tay, however, Mr. Food Musings and I met up with E. and B. for a cocktail at Farallon. While I was waiting for the other three (late arrivals) and sipping a glass of Bianco Veronese, Quintarelli, Secco Ca' del Merlo 2003, I perused the cocktail list. I found this description particularly delightful, don't you agree?
Old Overholt Rye Old-Fashioned ($8) Sugar. Orange. Cherry. Angostura Bitters. Muddled. Old Overhold Rye Whiskey. Ice. Twist. A well built cocktail. Period.
Isn't that refreshing? I almost ordered it and double-fisted my drinks, but then decided that wasn't a very lady-like thing to do, go and get all sloshed before a wedding reception. (Tsk, tsk went my inner maiden aunt.)
But I wanted to share the good writing with all of you. Cheers!
