The missing Titanic Submersible…imploded with no survivors. My heart goes out to the families…

Old Fashions

When you get right down to it, the Bourbon Old Fashioned is little more than a slug of whiskey, seasoned and sweetened. Yet for all of its suave simplicity, the drink remains as relevant today as it was when it first captured drinkers’ hearts 200 years ago.


  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 3 dashes Angostura bitters
  • 1 teaspoon water
  • 2 ounces bourbon (or rye whiskey, if preferred)
  • Garnish: orange twist


  1. Add the sugar and bitters into a mixing glass, then add the water, and stir until the sugar is nearly dissolved.
  2. Fill the mixing glass with ice, add the bourbon, and stir until well-chilled.
  3. Strain into a rocks glass over one large ice cube.
  4. Express the oil of an orange twist over the glass, then drop into the glass to garnish.

Watermelon Daiquiris


  • 4 cups chopped seedless watermelon (about 1 pound)
  • Kosher salt
  • 5 tablespoons (2 1/2 ounces) white rum (such as Ten To One)
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • ½ tablespoon agave nectar
  • Ice cubes
  • Watermelon slice
  • Directions
  • Process chopped watermelon in a blender until smooth, about 30 seconds. Pour processed watermelon through a fine wire-mesh strainer into a medium bowl to yield 1 1/2 cups watermelon juice (enough for 8 cocktails). Discard solids. Chill juice until ready to make cocktails.
  • Salt half the rim of a chilled coupe glass. Add white rum, lime juice, agave nectar, and 3 tablespoons watermelon juice to a cocktail shaker filled three- fourths of the way with ice. Cover and shake vigorously until well combined, about 10 seconds. Strain into coupe glass. Garnish with a watermelon slice.

St. Germaine Royals, The Bougie Drink of RHOA




  • Pour St‑Germain into a chilled Champagne glass (from the freezer).
  • Top with Champagne.
  • Give the drink a quick stir.
  • Garnish with a blackberry by placing on the rim of the glass.
