1½ oz Rock Town Arkansas Single Barrel Bourbon
2 dashes Angostura bitters
1 sugar cube
Put sugar cube in a lowball glass, saturate with bitters and a small amount of water (just enough to dissolve the sugar). Muddle until sugar is dissolved, then add bourbon. Add ice if desired (we used an ice sphere) and an orange peel.
The Old Fashioned is a classic cocktail that never fails, if made properly. Nowadays there are a lot of variations out there but our favorite version is this simple recipe. An ice sphere works well for dilution, especially when using a cask strength bourbon like we did. Now get your Don Draper on and enjoy your cocktail.
