papa and grey also had a blast at the stormtrooper parade at dragon con 2014! we planned way better this year and brought lawn chairs and arrived early to pick our spot. we also chose the shady side of the street, last year we were incredibly hot on the sunny side.

new look rittenhouse - photo by: ryan sterritt

rittenhouse has a new label design for its straight rye whiskey. the design is more modern and gives the bottle a classier feel. it still has a screw top, however the new look is definitely more pleasing to look at sitting on your liquor shelf! compare it to the old design.

rittenhouse has earned the double gold medal at the san francisco world spirits competition and was also named the best north american whisky by whisky magazine. not too shabby for a rye you can find for around $20!

did i mention it’s great in an old fashioned?

our little birds at the atlanta zoo this morning! on a side note, did you know as a georgia resident, you are able to get a family of four into the zoo for free once a year? all you have to do is visit a georgia public library and check out the zoo pass dvd. upon returning the dvd, you receive a pass that can get two adults and two children (kids under 3 are already free) into the zoo! this was our second time taking advantage of this great offer! it’s super easy and well worth the effort.

more details can be found here!

- old fashioned -

enjoying an #oldfashioned #cocktail !!! used #bulleitrye and #angosturabitters .

i enjoyed some old fashioned cocktails this evening! i would say it came from the combination of being on both a rye whiskey kick on top of a mad men kick!

for those interested, i went with bulleit rye and angostura bitters.

- ryan

old fashioned:

1 tsp sugar or 2 sugar cubes
2-4 dashes angostura bitters
2 oz rye whiskey
1 large ice cube or ice cubes
splash club soda
2 orange wheel
1 orange wheel rind
2 maraschino cherry

• rub an orange wheel rind around the rim of a highball glass
• muddle sugar, orange wheel, cherry and bitters in glass
• add a splash of club soda and swirl around
• remove orange rind and add ice
• pour in rye and stir
• garnish with a fresh maraschino cherry and an orange slice
