Bitter Cube, 16"x20" oil on linen
There is no cocktail as simple and balanced as one made the old fashioned way. The sugar, bitters, and twist of citrus make for the perfect compliment to a nice bourbon or rye. It is my go to drink if nothing else on a restaurant's menu is striking my fancy. The above painting is my Old Fashioned still life with a bitter soaked sugar cube and a slice of orange waiting to be married with its better half.
