It doesn’t matter what nation or neighborhood you live in, Italian food is righteously delicious.
We became one with our inner Italian this weekend with John’s amazing batch of lasagna. It started with a giant pot of Italian gravy (which translates to spaghetti sauce for non-Italians). The next day, it became lasagna.
During the two-day cooking process, the chef and his helpers must enjoy fine cocktails. John opted for an Old Fashioned, one of the most classic cocktails ever. I had a Deep Eddy Orange vodka and water, which is refreshing and light. And Lucy watched from one of her perches.
2 dashes orange bitters
2 dashes simple syrup
2 oz. bourbon
Pour over ice into a highball glass. Squeeze a fresh orange wedge into the glass. Mix. Garnish with an orange slice. (on left in photo)
Deep Eddy Orange and Water
2 oz. Deep Eddy Orange Vodka (not every flavored vodka is created equal, some are truly awful)
Fill with water
Add to a highball glass with ice. Mix. Add an orange slice. (on right in photo)
When the mood strikes, find your favorite lasagna and enjoy a fine cocktail.
Per cent’anni! (One hundred years of luck!)
