2oz Plymouth gin
3/4oz Torani Amer (however, I believe Amer Picon was used)
1 dash orange bitters
flamed orange peel

We finally made it over to Eastern Standard -- and wow, I have a crush on Jackson. He's obviously a person who takes seriously one's craft, and considers the responsibility one carries with such things... Husband was really appreciative of the Old Fashioned he made for him and spent some time chatting with him. I was my typical antisocial self and did no such thing -- another time, however, I will. We were seated at a table, but when the server came back to see if we needed new drinks, she said that he had suggestions for each of us -- which we both took, and were quite pleased with. My second drink was a Red Hook with gin instead of whiskey, and I'll list that recipe in a separate post.
I had to order the Hoskins, because it was Frederic linking to Chuck Taggart's blog that got me on this cocktail thing. And my, that's one tasty cocktail.
And the Standard itself -- wow. I really, really want to spend more time there. The food, the service, it was all so so nice, and a great way to spend a few hours. Oh, to live in the city again. Sigh.
