Drinkin' with Lincoln

In honor of Lincoln's 200th birthday, Passion Food Hospitality is raising a glass to Honest Abe. Until April 30, Acadiana, Ceiba, DC Coast, PassionFish and TenPenh will offer the "Drinkin' With Lincoln" cocktail, which is an Applejack Old Fashioned. If you want to mix it up yourself at home (and save the five dollar bill that it costs--yes, that's the one with Lincoln's picture on it), here's the recipe:

Drinkin' With Lincoln

1.5 ounces Laird’s Applejack
2 dashes housemade orange bitters (can use Fee Brothers, Regans or The Bitter Truth as well)
1 sugar cube
1 orange slice
1 cherry
Splash of soda

In a bucket glass, place sugar cube, orange slice, and cherry, followed by bitters. Muddle ingredients briefly and fill the glass with ice. Add applejack; top with soda.

Happy Birthday Abe!!!
