Old Fashioned Drinkin'

That's right, another piece of wisdom about the older, far more soused means of drinking.

This time, let's talk Old-Fashioned's. A real drink. THE symbol of old-fashioned drinkin', hence the name. Out of fashion lately because it's been watered down with bourbon. Make it with rye though, and it blows your mind. Enjoy.


2 dashes aromatic bitters
½ tsp sugar dissolved with water and bitters
1½ oz Rye.
1 cherry
1 orange slice
1 lemon wedge

Fill glass with ice. Add cherry, orange slice and lemon wedge. Pour in bourbon. Serve in a rocks glass over ice.
