The BEST Old Fashioned
2 tsp simple syrup (made with turbinado sugar // see notes for method)
3 dashes Angostura bitters
3 dashes orange bitters
1 large ice cube
2 oz. bourbon
1 piece orange peel
1 whole cocktail cherry
To a cocktail glass, add 2 tsp (2 bar spoons) of simple syrup (we prefer making our simple syrup with 1 part turbinado sugar and 1 part water — see notes for method).
Add 3 dashes Angostura bitters.
Add 3 dashes orange bitters.
Add a large ice cube to the glass.
Add 2 ounces (60 ml) of bourbon.
Stir, ideally for 1 minute and for at least 20 seconds.
Spritz an orange peel over the glass to release its oils. Then twist the peel and add to the glass.
Top with a cocktail cherry.
Cheers and repeat!
*To make simple syrup, add 1 part sugar (we prefer turbinado for complexity) and 1 part water to a small saucepan and heat over medium heat, stirring frequently until sugar is dissolved. Cool, pour into a jar or squeeze bottle, and use as instructed. Store leftovers in the refrigerator for up to 1 month.
