We stumbled upon the opening of an adorable throwback bar/restaurant in New York City’s West village this week. The Happiest Hour, from restaurateur Jon Neidich (Acme) and bartender Jim Kearns from NoMad, is a charmingly retro spot that serves up delicious comfort food (do yourself a favor and order one of their burgers). But, be sure to wash it down with their gorgeous Old Fashioned.
If you can’t make it to The Happiest Hour, we coerced Jim Kearns into giving us his recipe!
Stir and serve on the rocks with orange and lemon twists.
