Method

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.
