Happy Hour Help brought to you by River Rats Bar & Grill
Whiskey Old Fashioned
1 -2 oz. Your Favorite Whiskey
Dash or Two of Angostura Bitters
Wash (As in seltzer, 7-up, water, sour - whatever your preference)
In an old fashioned glass, crush the sugar cube and the maraschino cherry at the bottom of the glass with a muddler. Fill glass with ice. Pour whiskey into the glass, add a dash or two of bitters and fill with whatever wash you choose (I like to do a press, which is half seltzer and half 7-up). Squeeze orange peel into the glass and give it a good stir. Enjoy!
I'm not a big tequila drinker, but when I do drink it I like a few of these.

Juice of 1/2 lime
3 oz. orange juice
3/4 oz. grenadine
Mix all the ingredients except the grenadine and the lime slice in a shaker with ice. Pour into a tumbler glass. Slowly pour in grenadine, but do not stir. Garnish with lime slice.
My friend really likes scotch and assures me that this tastes great.
