Domain Name Change

I’ve moved the site to a new hosting service (Laughing Squid), and while I was at it, took the opportunity to move the website to a new URL.

The unwieldy underhill-lounge.flannestad.com is now gone and has been replaced by the shorter and punctuation free savoystomp.com.

Through the magic of Apache httpd Rewrite rules, Redirects, and .htaccess files, it appears the old links, and RSS feeds should continue to function.

I’ve also added a dedicated twitter ID for the site, so if you want site updates to show up in your twitter stream, follow SavoyStomp

Low Gap Old-Fashioned

Old-Fashioned.

06-04-2011, Low Gap Whiskey Old-Fashioned with Miracle Mile Forbidden Bitters.

2 oz Low Gap Clear Whiskey
1 tsp Caster Sugar
1 tsp Water
3 dash Miracle Mile Forbidden Bitters
Lemon Peel

Add sugar, water and bitters to the bottom of a heavy glass. Muddle until sugar is dissolved. Add cracked ice and pour in whiskey. Stir until well chilled. Squeeze lemon peel over glass and drop in.

A friend sent me this sample from a line of bitters he is working on, the Forbidden Bitters are designed to be an Old Fashioned style bitters in the vicinity of Abbott’s Bitters.

Well, what better to do with Old Fashioned style bitters than make an Old-Fashioned?

And a delicious Old-Fashioned it is!
