An Old Fashioned is a true classic. Made with whiskey, sugar, Angostura bitters, and an orange peel (or cherry) for garnish, it's a cocktail made for whiskey lovers!
- 2 ounces bourbon or rye whiskey
- 1/4 ounce simple syrup
- 2 dashes Angostura bitters
- Orange peel or Luxardo cherry, for garnish (optional)
1 Make the drink: Add simple syrup and bitters to a rocks glass. Fill the glass with ice, and stir to combine. (My favorite stirrer for a single cocktail? This cake tester!) Add bourbon or rye and stir for about 30 seconds to chill and dilute. Garnish with orange peel or Luxardo cherry, if desired.
