Old fashioned?, we like to be hip with a touch of the classics.
1 tsp sugar or simple syrup
2–3 dashes bitters, Angostura is traditional
2 oz bourbon or rye whiskey
1 maraschino cherry
Orange peel for garnish
1. In old-fashioned glass, combine sugar/simple syrup and bitters. Fill glass halfway with ice, then stir until well blended.
2. Add enough ice to fill glass. Squeeze orange peel over glass to extract oils, add peel to glass, and add whiskey. Stir again.
3. Add orange garnish and cherry and serve!
