One of, if not, the most iconic whiskey cocktail in the world. A great way to put a nightcap on a long day and with only 3 basic ingredients to get it going. Try it with your favorite bourbons or mix it up a little and switch out the whiskey with an anejo tequila or aged rum!
1 Barspoon of Simple Syrup
2 Dashes of Bitters (I like using Angostura Bitters)
2 ounces of your favorite Bourbon or Rye Whiskey, Anejo Tequila or Aged Rum (I personally love using a rye whiskey in old fashioned, the spice notes play really well with the bitters and syrup!)
Garnish with an orange peel and cherry!
