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

Serves 1

  • 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.
