There’s Nothing Old About the Old Fashioned

Meeting someone for dinner you need to impress? Order an Old Fashioned. Trust me. It’s basically straight whiskey with a little extra (Pro tip: It’s really good with orange bitters instead of the usual Angostura bitters for more of a twist).


1 1/2 oz Bourbon or Rye whiskey (We used Buffalo Trace Bourbon)
2 dashes of Angostura bitters
Few dashes plain water


Place sugar cube in an old-fashioned glass and saturate with bitters, add a splashash of water. Muddle until dissolved. Fill the glass with ice cubes and add whiskey. Garnish with an orange slice and a cocktail cherry.
