Kinky Old Fashioned
We were at Prime 94 Steakhouse on Friday for my wife’s birthday. Friends were in town and wanted to take us to lunch. I see they have a new cocktail program, so I decided to try one. The drink was not bad, but certainly not a delicious craft cocktail that would command a Manhattan price of $15. I knew better, of course. However, I must keep trying, especially because this one looked interesting.
The rum is aged in former bourbon casks, but the addition of sweet vermouth would put this more in the Manhattan category. I am not sure what the Benedictine was doing there, I love this spirit, but you could barely taste it, and much less the apple blossom bitters.
