Catch Her in the Rye

This sophisticated drink carries a kick - be sure to sip it slowly. I never have more than one! Never, never, never! Unless Im offered a second one, of course.

Catch Her in the Rye: 
Ice - plenty of it
1-½ parts rye
1-½ parts orange liqueur such as Grand Marnier or Cointreau
1 sugar cube per glass
Enough Angostura bitters to saturate cube
Strip of orange peel, as needed
For each cocktail, chill martini glass in freezer. Add ice, rye, and orange liqueur to martini shaker. Shake vigorously. Drop one sugar cube into each chilled glass, soaking cube in bitters. Crush saturated sugar cube. Strain and pour chilled alcohol into glass. Serve with a thin strip of orange peel on top. 

Even the glass looks tipsy! Refreshing and delicious!
