Favorite Aperitif while preparing dinner

FoodExpression | May 17, 201112:33 PM     65

For me it depends on whats for dinner....I love pouring that first drink while preparing my mise en place. But most of the time its one or two stiff cocktails.....ive been drinking lots of makers mark Manhattans on the rocks with angostura bitters at home. A little sweet, a little bitter, and savory from the bourbon...yes sir.

Two of those...then get into a bottle of wine with dinner....Im a happy man.
