How To: Mix a classic Old Fashioned mixed drink cocktail

The Old Fashioned is one of America's earliest cocktails. It has very few ingredients, but is very complex and is quite challenging. Brown sugar syrup adds extra flavor and works very well with the bourbon. If you use a different base, such as Crown Royal Canadian whiskey, brown sugar syrup might be too overpowering. Bitters is an important part of the Old Fashioned and the amount is entirely up to you (although omitting the bitters is not an option). Adding the orange zest is highly recommen...

Food Tool Friday: One Knife to Rule Them All

When I was a senior in college, I shared a two-bedroom, one bathroom, microscopic kitchenette suite with three other girls. We all loved to bake and cook but were fully aware that we were in for a crowded year. We needed to use space efficiently, which meant carefully picking what kitchen equipment was absolutely necessary. As a full knife set was out of the question, we settled on a Shun Classic Ultimate Utility Knife whose praises my father had sung for a long time.

How To: Make Smoked Ice for One-of-a-Kind Cocktails

A long time ago I was reading an issue of Saveur and saw an article about a trendsetting bar in Portland. The bartender at the joint had started making enormous blocks of smoked ice for his cocktails. When a patron ordered a drink that called for the smoked ice, the bartender would chip off a large chunk and place it in a glass with the booze. Then, as the ice slowly melted, the drink would take on more and more smoky notes, and the flavor profile of the beverage would change with every passi...
