Cocktails are very hip right now. And no, I’m not talking about martinis – cosmos are sooooooo 2004. I’m talking about the kind of cocktails your grandparents drink, made from bourbon and whiskey and such. My usual “go to” is a Dark and Stormy, but last week I was out with Kinnon at Leslieville’s newly opened Hitch (named after Christopher Hitchens, of course), and I tried an Old Fashioned. It was fantastic – they had it just right. A little bit bitter, a little orangey… yummy.
