The perfect old fashioned cocktail
The Old Fashioned is a serious cocktail and it is one you really should know how to make at home. When made well, the Old Fashioned cocktail is strong, but not overly so. There’s sweetness, but it isn’t cloying or excessive.

- 3 dashes bitters
- 2 ounces mid-range bourbon or rye whiskey
- 2 ks One inch of orange peel
- 1 to maraschino cherries
Place simple syrup, bitters and the whiskey in an Old Fashioned glass stir well.
Then add 1 to 2 large ice cubes.
Stir 2 to 3 times to chill then garnish with peel of orange and cherry.
