An ‘Old Fashioned Cocktail
This cocktail is my guilty sin! Make sure you make it with bourbon, not whisky, as the flavour of bourbon is sweeter whereas whisky has a smokier flavour – it really makes a difference in this cocktail, I like to use ‘Makers Mark’.
60ml Bourbon (see note above)
A piece of orange peel
1 teaspoon of sugar syrup
3 dashes of angostura bitters
Add the sugar syrup and the angostura bitters to a glass and with a few cubes of ice, hold the orange peel over the glass and squeeze it ‘to express the oils’ and then drop it into the glass, give everything a stir.
Add the Bourbon, stir again and serve…ahhh!
