the perfected old fashioned

this guest post via: Benjamin Somoza

An old fashioned is maybe America's oldest and most classic cocktails.
The year round sipper is a staple at my house and for any guy that loves bourbon.

I follow these directions exactly.

recipe via epicurious

1 scant teaspoon simple syrup
2 dashes angostura bitters
2oz good quality whiskey
1 marashino cherry
1 twist of an orange


1. in an old fashioned glass, combine simple syrup and bitters.
fill glass with ice and stir a dozen times.

2. squeeze orange peel over glass to extract oils, 
add peel to glass and add whiskey.
stir a dozen more times.

3. garnish with cherry
