Every since I began counting New Orleans as my second home, I have been all about an Old Fashioned cocktail. Purists would probably frown on the way I make one. But fuck em, this way is way better.


I say you should always make more more than one, but for one cocktail, you’ll need:

  • 1 sugar cube
  • 3 dashes Angostura bitters
  • 3 dashes of Peychaud bitters (this is not traditional)
  • Ice
  • 2 oz. rye whiskey (3 is better)
  • Orange peel (for garnish) NOTE: NO CHERRIES

1. Place sugar cube in glass.

2. Add bitters to sugar cube.

3. Muddle sugar.

4. Add booze and ice.

5. Stir with bar spoon till sugar is dissolved.

6. Twist orange peel over the glass to release the zest. Rim glass with orange peel. Place peel in glass.

7. Drink.

8. Repeat.

Christian has been a cultural and style junkie since the age of 6; while most kids were swiping cookies, he was swiping his grandfathers' Patek Philippe. Raised to appreciate art, fashion,design and  literature (yeah, this one actually reads) by a single mother fondly called Jackie-O. Christian quickly went from childhood cultural capital thief to academia protégé. Referred to as the cat's meow by some, too clever by half by others, Christian eschewed the academic life and ran away to join the circus -the fashion circus. Several well-appointed positions later and a career on the rise would be most people's dream but it was time to say fuck off and start all over again.

This is Christian Dare Unedited.
