12 Days of Drinkmas: Old Fashioned
Nothing feels more classic than an Old Fashioned on a Winter’s day!
It is probably one of my favorite cocktails to order when I am out on the town. It’s easy to drink and hard to mess up. Enjoy this by the fire and with a good book!
Classic Old Fashioned
- 1 teaspoon superfine sugar (or 1 sugar cube)
- 2 to 3 dashes bitters
- A few drops of water
- 2 ounces bourbon or rye whiskey
- Orange (we used a lemon because we had no oranges)
- Marachino cherry, to garnish
Muddle the sugar, bitters, and the water in a Rocks glass.
Add the whiskey and stir until the sugar dissolves.
Add ice and stir until chilled.
Garnish with a cherry and a slice of orange.
