Corey Reed has been a bartender on Capitol Hill for more than eight years, having worked at Grim’s for two and now DeLuxe Bar and Grill for the past six. When he’s not serving you booze, he’s hanging out with his Corgi, Archer, which he says is “my favorite part of my life.” Salt Lake City makes an appearance in this cocktail, as Reed prefers High West Double Rye as the base for his Old Fashioned. “A little sugar, we use Toschi cherries, Angostura Bitters, orange peel, muddled, on the rocks” is his recipe and CHS highly recommends taking it outside to enjoy the sights and sounds of northern Broadway.
I drank this on Capitol Hill is a semiregular photographic tour of some of Capitol HIll’s best cocktails and libations. Have a suggestion for something we should drink? Let us know in comments.
