Old-Fashioned Swedish Glogg

Rating: Unrated
My grandfather brought this recipe over from Sweden in 1921. We still use it today. God Jul.

Old Fashioned Cocktail

Rating: Unrated
The earliest version of this cocktail was simply water, sugar, bitters, and booze. Over time, the water became ice, the booze became whiskey, and the drink became an old fashioned.

True Manhattan

Rating: Unrated
A classic drink. Stir, most Manhattan drinkers like it that way. Shake it only when asked to do so. May be served up or on the rocks.

Classic Whiskey Sour

Rating: Unrated
If it's not made from scratch, it ain't a Whiskey Sour. For a cleaner, classier looking drink, strain the lemon juice to remove seeds and pulp.
