Cocktail Hour: Old Fashioned

I'm not a huge whiskey fan, but in a cocktail, it's very different indeed. As long as that cocktail is decent. And there's nothing better than an Old Fashioned. It's one of those drinks that will make you feel warm and fuzzy when the sun goes down. In fact, there's no better drink to watch the sunset with.

You'll need these things:
  • 50ml bourbon - JD will do just fine.
  • 3 drops bitters
  • Tablespoon warm water
  • Lemon rind
  • Orange rind
  • Ice
  • Sugar cube
You'll need to do these things:

Soak the sugar cube with the bitters, and place into an Old Fashioned glass. Stir with the teaspoon of warm water until dissolved. Add the bourbon and the ice, then finish off with the lemon rind and orange rind. Enjoy!

  1. Possibly going to sound really dim but what kind of bitters would you use? There seems to be loads of different versions and I havent got a clue!

  2. Angostura for this one. You're right about the choice of bitters! Play around, see what you like and don't like.
