Old Fashioned

2 oz. O&E bourbon or Rye (I prefer 3 oz)

1 oz. simple syrup (homemade)

2 drops (fee brothers brand) old fashion bitters

1 maraschino cherry

1/2 teaspoon cherry juice

Orange rind


Serving Size: One (not always the loneliest number)

Preparation: Rocks Glass with Medium sized Ice Cubes

Directions: Muddle the bitters, simple syrup, orange rind, cherry and cherry juice. Remove the orange rind, add the bourbon and fill with ice. Garnish with a fresh orange wheel and cherry.


Inspired Twist 

Soak fresh cherries in Brandy for 36 hours, and add them along with 1 teaspoon of the soaking liquid to the cocktail for an added level of depth.
