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.
