What’s hot and different is perpetually on our minds. We use technology to stay on top of a continuous stream of NEW. Sometimes that can be overwhelming. Luckily, occasionally we can go comfortingly retro when we think of a drink, like an Old Fashioned. Not something I hear many people ordering much with all of the small-batch spirits and craft beers available. But it’s good. Smooth. Familiar. And it always makes me think of Spencer Tracy in the original Father of the Bride with Elizabeth Taylor. He’s put in charge of the bar at her fancy engagement party in the movie and promptly prepares a tray of Martinis and Old Fashioneds. “Who doesn’t like Old Fashioneds..?” he quips. I agree Spencer.
So why not give it a try this Friday. Enjoy the release of tension on as you muddle fruit, and revel in your bravado as that elixir slides down smooth and sweet. Retro is good.
