Owls in Manhattan

Rare Italian ice bucket.

From GallivantingGirls.

Lately, I’ve been drinking Manhattans when I go out.  And I always ask for them in Old Fashioned glasses, instead of the martini glasses bartenders seem to serve them in. I am trying to be all Don Draper and what not, so I should be authentic.

I havealso been thinking about acquiring some vintage barware for parties–what I have now is just lacking in suaveness.  This vintage owl ice bucket would be perfect for me, but it is a bit out of my price range. {sigh}.

By the way, here is a great recipe for making bitters and I think I might give it a try.
