Bourbon District Old Fashioned Cocktail Recipe
The old-fashioned is a cocktail made by muddling sugar with bitters, usually orange, and water, adding Kentucky Bourbon, and garnishing with an orange twist or zest and a cocktail cherry. It is traditionally served in an old-fashioned glass, which predates the cocktail.
1/2 teaspoon sugar
3 dashes bitters
1 teaspoon water
2 ounces bourbon
Ice to taste
orange peel, twisted and rubbed along the edge before placing in the glass
