The Old Square

Drink: The Old Square
Type: Alcoholic
From: Bluestem
Price: $11
Description: Perfect

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.
