Old-Fashioned

from The Bartender's Black Book


We've been appreciating classic, "old-fashioned" cocktails this days, especially those involving whiskey. Side note: a very nice whiskey for splurging and for drinking all by itself is Whistlepig Straight Rye Whiskey (bottled in Vermont).




Maraschino cherry
1 orange slice
1/2 t sugar or splash simple syrup
4 - 5 dashes Angostura Bitters
2 oz. whiskey
soda water

In a short glass, muddle cherry, orange, sugar, and bitters. Fill with ice. Add whiskey. Splash, or fill, with soda water. Stir.
