7: Old Fashioned

03/18/2016 , 2m, 40s

It's not just a soda-soaked fruit soup for your grandpa. This is a simple, easy, pure cocktail that I hope you like.

2 oz. rye or Bourbon
1/2 oz. simple syrup
2 dashes bitters (Angostura or something more exotic)

Add all ingredients to a mixing glass, add ice, and stir. Strain into a
rocks glass over ice. Garnish with orange peel and/or lemon peel. Add a
cherry, if you're feeling frisky.

Note: In the audio, it sounds like I'm using three dashes of bitters. It's
really only two dashes.
