Old Fashioned
By Chris Dickson

1 scant teaspoon simple syrup
2 dashes Angostura® Bitters, plus more to taste
1 half-dollar-sized orange peel, including pith
2 ounces good-quality rye or bourbon
1 maraschino cherry


In Old Fashioned glass, combine simple syrup and bitters. Fill glass halfway with ice, then stir about a dozen times. Add enough ice to fill glass. Squeeze orange peel over glass to extract oils, add peel to glass, and add bourbon. Stir just until drink is cold and alcoholic bite has softened, about a dozen times. Garnish with cherry, swizzle stick, and straw.
