Doug says he can’t find an Old Fashioned Cocktail he likes as much as ours. The first time he said it I was surprised. Of all the inventive versions of the Old Fashioned out there, ours is always by the book. Sometimes I actually get a little nervous when I look down at our list of three to five cocktails, mostly traditional, and worry that people aren’t going to think they are interesting, or at least varied, enough. Not that we don’t ever innovate. We do. Often. When we do, though, we are always sure to start on solid foundations; the right techniques, marched out to the right timing.

Even if we can’t take credit for their invention every time, we always treat them as if we can; right.
