Rye Squared

My son Rye

A Recipe for Rye from today's New York Times

Rye Old-Fashioned
Adapted from Rye, Brooklyn

Time: 5 minutes

1 teaspoon Demerara sugar

2 ounces rye whiskey

1 or 2 dashes Angostura bitters

1 or 2 dashes orange bitters

1 strip lemon peel.

1. Spoon sugar into a shaker and add about a teaspoon of very hot water for a simple syrup. Stir until dissolved, adding a little more water if needed.

2. Add whiskey and bitters, and stir again. Add several ice cubes and stir well to chill. Strain into an old-fashioned glass, add 2 or 3 big ice cubes, twist lemon peel over the top and drop it in.

Yield: 1 drink.
