Old-Fashioned

Old-Fashioned, Epicurious.com
Neal's go-to cocktail, and Old-Fashioned, is quickly becoming one of my favorites too. This classic concoction was dreamed up in the 1800s (according to Esquire Magazine) and is just sweet enough to make that whiskey or bourbon go down easy.

What You'll Need:
Dash of club soda
1 sugar cube (look for a raw, unbleached sugar)
Dash of Angostura Bitters
2 1/2 ounces whiskey
Ice
1 strip orange peel
1 strip lemon peel

Directions:
  1. In a cocktail shaker, pour the club soda over the sugar cube and let the sugar dissolve. Muddle as needed.
  2. Add the bitters, whiskey, and ice. Stir.
  3. Strain into a glass.
  4. Twist the orange and lemon peels to release the oils and use as garnish.
  5. Enjoy!
Tip: If you don't have an orange and a lemon peel on hand, use a different garnish! We used a clementine peel the other night and our drinks were de-lish!

  1. I've never tried one. Might have to now! (well, not "now" now, "soon" now!)
