Old Fashioned

We’ve never blogged about a drink before but I’ve become quite partial to this Old Fashioned on occasion. Traditional recipes call for a cherry but as we never have any, I’ve never used them and it still tastes good.

Recipe:
Maker’s Mark (or Bourbon of choice)
Angostura bitters
Sugar
Water
Ice
Orange peel

Method:
Peel a good length of orange using a potato peeler. Twist to release the zest and put in glass with about 3 ice cubes, 1/2 tsp sugar, three drops of bitters and about 10ml water. Stir well to dissolve most of the sugar.

Add a good amount of Bourbon (at least a double shot but who measures?). Top up the glass with ice and enjoy. (Don’t blame me if it tastes so good you have to have more than one and don’t feel great in the morning.)
