Old Fashioned

  • 1 demerara sugar cube
  • splash of water
  • 2 orange peels
  • 2 dashes Angostura Bitters
  • 2 dashes of Post Prohibition Pick Me Up Bitters
  • 1 lemon peel

In a mixing glass add a splash of water and a demerara sugar cube. Muddle the sugar cube until it is dissolved. Add one orange peel and muddle to release the orange oils. Add your bitters, a healthy amount of bourbon, ice and stir to chill. Strain into a double old fashioned glass with ice. Larger the ice the better. Garnish with an orange and lemon peel.

3 Notes on Old Fashioned

  1. Hey, not sure if you remember but you made me a couple of these at one of your events. They were the best ever.

  2. I love this website !! thank you so much for sharing the really nice recipes!!! I’m playing with the “Old Fashioned” cocktail right now and totally enjoying the results. Didn’t have any sugar, used agave syrup instead, still good though.
