Old Fashioned

AT A GLANCE

  • Serves 1 people

  • 2 tsp sugar syrup
  • ½ tsp Angostura bitters
  • 60 ml (¼ cup) bourbon or rye whiskey
  • 2 orange wedges
  • To garnish: Maraschino cherry (optional, see note)
01   Add sugar syrup, bitters and 2 ice cubes to a large tumbler (the Old Fashioned glass takes its name, in fact, from the cocktail) and stir to combine.
02   Add half the whiskey, an orange wedge and 2 more ice cubes and stir for 30 seconds to a minute.
03   Add another 2 ice cubes and the remaining whiskey and stir for another minute, adding more ice if necessary.
04   Add another piece of orange wedge, and, if you’re feeling jaunty, a maraschino cherry, and serve.
Note Maraschino cherries are available from select supermarkets and delicatessens.
