Sharp Dressed Man: Whisk(e)y Wednesday presented by Lock & Key

One of the newest cocktails to grace the menu at the Lock & Key Whiskey Bar is the properly named Sharp Dressed Man. The simple but refreshing take on an Old Fashioned begins its life with a house-made ginger simple syrup. The ginger adds a touch of floral spice that takes the drink in a unique direction. A few dashes of Angostura bitters and a generous pour of a peppery bourbon make this whiskey drink the real deal. It is then garnished with an orange peel and served over a new hand cut crystal clear ice block. Lock & Key is getting fancy!

You may notice that there is no muddled orange and cherry at the bottom of this glass. Not to worry, though, as this is really the appropriate way to make an Old Fashioned. Bitters, sugar and a brown spirit do the trick. The rest if just lagniappe.

The Sharp Dressed Man is definitely worth a try next time you're at Lock & Key!
