Home Plate, rye cocktail

Here’s something for the 7th inning stretch during tonight’s Baseball All-Star game at Target Field in Minneapolis. We’ve been playing around with creating our own bitters and used our Muddy Bitters (a work in progress) in this. Angostura or Peychaud’s bitters work equally well. There also is the full range of Fee Brothers bitters to match whatever taste undertone you want.

Home Plate Home Plate vert
2 ounces rye
1/2 ounce sweet vermouth
2 dashes Angostura or your choice of bitters
Half slice of orange
Chilled soda water

Muddle the half orange slice with the vermouth and bitters in an old-fashioned glass. Add the bourbon and several ice cubes. Stir. Top with a splash of soda, no more than 1 ounce. Garnish with remaining half slice of orange.
