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.
