In honor of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, and all the personnel at the World Wide Wicket Company, enjoy this recipe for the Sticky Wicket. This smoky variation on an Old Fashioned is the perfect cocktail after a long day at work. Or you can take a page from Mad Men’s book and put it together while you’re still at the office—if you happen to have maple syrup handy.
Sticky Wicket Cocktail Recipe
1/2 ounce soda water
1/2 ounce maple syrup
1/4 Fernet-Branca bitters
4 dashes barrel-aged bitters
2 ounces Jim Beam bourbon (or bourbon of your choosing)
Pour all ingredients on the rocks in a lowball glass and stir. Squeeze orange peel over drink, then garnish.
It’s been a long day. You deserve to treat yourself. Enjoy!
