When I was hunting the fridge looking to bag something for lunch, this just jumped out in front of me:
Well, it wasn’t that exactly, it was a 3oz piece of sous vide NY Strip that most glorious spousal unit set aside for me. She’s thoughtful that way.
What to do, what to do?
I’d initially thought about a grilled cheese sandwich. Why not add some NY Strip strips?
A little salt and pepper here, a little sear there, toasty bread over there, and voilà!
All well and good, but I needed a beverage. Adult if you please. Bourbon infused.
Thus a Newfangled Old Fashioned is born.
2oz Bourbon of choice
5 drips of bitters
1/4oz agave nectar
Two pinches of turbinado sugar
Glass with ice
