Drumroll please! Get ready to listen to the dulcet tones of someone attempting to avoid the dreaded vocal fry as much as possible…because Bit by a Fox is now a weekly podcast!
It’s true! As an extension of this boozy blog, I’ll be giving you all a weekly dose of audio realness. This has been a long time coming and we are SO stoked to finally get this baby out there. “We” meaning me and my producing partner, Anna Tivell, who is also editor, engineer and all around badass. She makes me sound so much better than IRL! It’s like she’s Facetuned my voice and I never want to speak in real life again.
Why a podcast? The thing about this subject matter is that it’s so rich. The history and culture of drinking lends itself so well to the storytelling medium that podcasts have become. We have a lot of exciting episodes in the works, including interviews with some of my favorites in the cocktail and spirits industry. It’ll be a little mix of history, alchemy and geekdom. And FUN, of course! This inaugural episode is short and sweet, an intro to me and the show.
Listen to Episode 1: Intro & The Old Fashioned” – me
I’ll be posting the episode link and info here every Friday along with a cocktail recipe that is featured at the end of each episode.
For our first end-of-episode cocktail, I thought it only fitting to feature the OG of classic cocktails, The Old Fashioned. See below for my recipe and then listen to the podcast! Give it a million stars and rave reviews and tell your friends and post to all the social medias!
Old Fashioned – served in a rocks glass
2 oz rye or bourbon
1 sugar cube or teaspoon of loose sugar or ¼ oz of simple syrup
Place the sugar cube in rocks glass, add 3-4 dashes of bitters and a splash of club soda. Muddle to assimilate into the liquids. Add a large ice-cube or a couple smaller ones. Pour in whiskey. Stir until well mixed and chilled. Garnish with an orange peel, a lemon peel, or if you’re old school, an orange wheel and cherry.
