Drink: The Old Square
I feel like I have a lot of favorite cocktails, but this one from Bluestem is perfection in a double old-fashioned glass. The Old Overholt rye whiskey (my favorite) mixes well with the Benedictine, brandy, and sweet vermouth.
The drink: spicy, tart, herbal, sweet
The addition of the flamed orange peel adds a great amount of citrus aroma to this wonderfully proportioned cocktail. With the newly renovated space in Westport and potentially the best Happy Hour in the city, it's really a can't miss.
