Flasked Old Fashioned
This recipe will fit in a common 6 oz flask, the sort you are likely to carry to a wedding.
4 oz bourbon or rye (bonus points for something high-proof).
1 oz water.
½ oz Rich Simple Syrup (recipe below).
4 dashes Angostura bitters.
4 orange peels.
makes 3 or 4 servings.
In a 1 qt measuring glass, combine the bourbon, water, simple syrup, and bitters. Squeeze the oils from the orange peels over the mix and discard. Using a funnel, pour the mixture directly into a 6 oz flask. Store the flask in a freezer or on ice until ready to serve.
Rich Simple Syrup.
You can measure your sugar and water by volume (two cups of sugar to one cup of water works),but for the most accuracy, I like to measure by weight. A digital scale is cheap and super useful for all sorts of kitchen projects. I strongly recommend you pick one up.
16 oz granulated sugar.
8 oz water.
makes 12 oz.
In a small saucepan or microwave-safe bowl, combine the sugar and water and give it a good stir. Heat until the sugar is just dissolved and then remove from the heat. Set aside to cool. Transfer to plastic squeeze bottles and refrigerate for up to 2 weeks.
My favorite drinks book of the year is The Bar Book: Elements of Cocktail Technique. Mr. Morgenthaler, a well-regarded Portland, Ore.-based bartender and blogger, notes that a great cocktail requires a combination of three elements: recipe, ingredient and technique. He admits that the first two have been well-plumbed in existing books, then lasers in on the third. Just learning how to make his ingenious but simple 'MacGyver Centrifuge' with cheesecloth and a salad spinner to filter fruit juices is nearly worth the cover price.
--Wayne Curtis, Wall Street Journal
An accessible but sophisticated primer that could render the rest of the cocktail library obsolete.

All in all, a great read. I am glad I had his name to refer to above when writing this as I definitely would have spelled it Morganthaler if I hadn't seen it.
