How to Make an Old Fashioned:

Making an old fashioned is a simple process, but there are a few key steps that will ensure a perfect drink. First, start with a sugar cube and saturate it with bitters. Then add a splash of water and muddle the ingredients until the sugar is dissolved. Next, fill the glass with ice cubes and add whiskey. Finally, garnish the drink with an orange slice and a cocktail cherry.
