What can I say? I guess I am Old Fashioned. Man that was cheezy.
Anyway, I found this "new" recipe for a great classic drink. Check out the video by liquor.com below. I decided to give this one a try even though it was 10:30 in the morning. Weekends dont count right?!
The brown sugar really made this cocktail pop. I have always used simple syrup but this was something else. Sweeter, but in a smokier way. I think I might have to reconsider my usual recipe for Old Fashioned's...
CLASSIC OLD FASHIONED
· 1 Brown sugar cube
· .5 tsp White sugar
· 3 dashes Angostura Bitters
· 1 dash Regans’ Orange Bitters No. 6
· .25 oz Cold water
· 2 oz George Dickel No. 12 Tennessee Whisky or other American whiskey (I used Woodford Reserve and it blew my f-ing mind)
In a rocks glass, muddle both sugars, both bitters and the water. Add the whiskey and a large ice cube. Twist slices of lemon and orange peel over the drink and drop them in.
Garnish: Lemon and orange twists
