Another Inagural Voyage
With our wedding done, the time has come to make more things with our wedding gifts. Tonight, this involved making a beef, vegetable and barley soup in our new Dutch oven, and then after dinner fixing the first cocktail with new new martini glasses and cocktail shaker. (Actually, we got two cocktail shakers -- any capital regionites want our old one?) I thought an appropriate choice was the king of cocktails, the Manhattan. In this case, made with Sazerac Rye.* Delicious!
*In Manhattans, my position is that rye is better than bourbon -- the hint of sourness and spice works well.
