    New favorite cocktail

    My new favorite cocktail is very simple: pour some bourbon in a rocks glass (like the stuff my husband buys for me that I don't really like), add ice and a few drops of bitters. Stir and drink. It's quite tasty!

    Agreed.

    Why not add some sweet vermouth and cruise your way into Manhattan?

    I could and do sometimes. But this one is the essence of simplicity.

    That is like a Pink Lady made with bourbon instead of gin.

    I think a Pink Lady is grenadine and gin (egg white etc.., lemon variations, fizzes etc...). Angosutra bitters and gin is a "Pink Gin" cocktail, a crazy concoction done originally with Plymouth and bitters.

    Pink gin is..... one of those real out there drinks I must say...

    I am sorry, you are correct. Pink Gin is what I meant, but I definitely said the wrong thing. At my age...

    Re: New favorite cocktail

    Good to hear the re-discovery of the oldest form of whiskey cocktail probably: whiskey-and-bitters. Sometimes sugar is added, but that's always optional. It is indeed a classic, I made one tonight inspired by this thread.

    Re: New favorite cocktail

    I remember the first time I had pink gin...

    ...

    ok I take that back I really don't it was kind of a blur.

    there is nothing that makes a good drink better sometimes than a dash of bitters. Bitters... the spice of cocktail seasoning!

    I love orange bitters in my bourbon too!

    Cheers!

    I'm kind of fond of the old-style mist, too: shake briefly with ice, pour, garnish with a cherry.
