Here’s how to make an Old Fashioned Cocktail- a simple American classic.  This version substitutes orange zest for the traditional orange peel garnish and incorporates 2 simple syrups, elevating it to its fullest potential!  

Ingredients

  • 2 ounces bourbon (or rye) whiskey
  • 1 teaspoon orange zest
  • 1/2 teaspoon simple syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon honey simple syrup
  • 12 dashes of Angostura bitters

Simple Syrup

  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup water

Honey Simple Syrup

  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup hot water

Instructions

  1. Make the simple syrups.  Heat 1/4 cup sugar and 1/4 cup water in a small saucepan, stirring until sugar is completely dissolved.  Remove from heat and allow to cool.  Whisk together 1/4 cup honey and 1/4 cup hot water in a heat-resistant mixing glass.  Allow to cool.
  2. Combine: Add all ingredients to a mixing glass, stir until well-combined, then strain over a large chunk of ice placed into an 8-10 ounce “rocks” or “old fashioned” glass.
