Day 4:
As I mentioned previously, my sister-in-law's boyfriend is an amazing bartender. He adds his own special flair to drinks. I consulted them when I was compiling my list of drinks and Derek was generous enough to share some of his recipes with me. This is one of his. I'm sure his garnishes & ingredients are far superior to mine, but I did my best. I realized I made a crucial error when I made this drink. I served it on the rocks when it should be served straight up. Oops. This is what happens with an absent-minded, distracted, & medicated bartender. C’est la vie.

As for the orange bitters, we picked the bottle up at our local liquor store. Some grocery stores also carry them in the mixer aisle.
