The classic Old Fashioned just screams old Hollywood, but just like Best Picture Nominee, The Artist, we've put a modern twist on the old classic. Using orange bitters, which is readily available at most grocers, adds a citrus kick to perfectly compliment your bourbon of choice.
- 3 Ounces good bourbon
- 1 Teaspoon sugar
- 1 Teaspoon water
- 2 Dashes orange-infused bitters
Dissolve the sugar into a glass with the water and the bitters. Stir gentle to ensure that the sugar has completely dissolved.
Add a few ice cubes to the water mixture and then pour the bourbon over the ice cubes.
If you’d like to get a little fancy with your bourbon old fashioned, many people add a few condiments to the drink. The accompanying condiments of choice for a bourbon old fashioned are a slice of lemon, a slice of orange and a maraschino cherry.
