fallen guru

Inspired by a friend’s brush with a cultish guru.

2 oz bourbon or whiskey
2 oz chai with milk

Combine over ice in an old fashioned glass.

Recommendation:
1 oz Morning Glory Chai (or other spicy and not sweet chai)
1 oz vanilla soy milk

sidecar

The most classic of classic cocktails. And, my first. You always remember your first.

2 oz brandy
1 oz triple sec
1 oz lemon juice

Combine in a shaker over ice, and strain into cocktail glass.

20th century

A classic cocktail created in honor of the art deco inspired 20th Century Limited train that ran from New York’s Grand Central Station and Chicago’s LaSalle Street Station. I discovered this at a chocolate festival. The ingredients combine into their own unique flavor.

1½ oz gin
¾ oz Lillet Blanc
¾ oz light creme de cacao
¾ oz lemon juice

combine in shaker over ice, strain into cocktail glass.

old fashioned

My slightly fruitier (I would say, improved) take on the old fashioned.

1½ oz bourbon or whiskey
1 tsp sugar
4 drops angostura bitters
slice of orange
2 maraschino cherries

In an old fashioned glass, muddle the sugar, orange slice, and one cherry. Add bourbon and ice. Stir, and garnish with a cherry.
