    Order:  Old Fashioned, Makers Mark

    Price:  $13

    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.
