Name of Establishment: Gramercy Tavern
Location: 42 E 20th St New York, NY 10003
Order: Old Fashioned, Makers Mark
Comments: Perfect experience from a top-notch bartender. He asked my preference for fruit and recommended Old Overholt Rye instead of Makers Mark. He added three brandied cherries, bitters and a sugar cube and then carefully mashed with a pestle. Stirred not shaken. The rye was spicer and less sweet than the bourbon, also perhaps due to the use of sugar instead of simple syrup. Delicious, more complex, and earthy.
