One Fifty One, the no-fuss, ‘70s-inspired bar on the Lower East Side, has created sudden sparks with their new cocktail menu. Here, co-owner Alexander Day dishes about the inspiration behind one of their latest signature drinks.
“Casual Magic is an Old Fashioned that tastes great and incorporates some nuanced tropical flavors,” he says. “Old Forester was a natural choice for the bourbon as it has some fantastic roasted coconut notes as well as mint and vanilla.”
Here’s how to make it.
1 oz. Rittenhouse Rye Whiskey
1 oz. Pierre Ferrand 1840
1 tsp. Pineapple syrup
2 drops Tiki bitters
1 dash Angostura Bitters
In an Old Fashioned glass, mix ingredients and stir with ice until chilled. Garnish with a pineapple frond.
