Recipe by Bill Spain

Use a high quality bourbon for this, such as Knob Creek.

Never had an old-fashioned before although I love bourbon. I like it, although I didn't muddle anything since I don't have a muddler and I wanted to keep the cherry intact. Good though! FYI, sorry about the photo quality, I used a camera phone. :)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix sugar and angostura bitters in an old-fashioned glass. Mix the two, then add a splash of water. Drop in a cherry and an orange wedge, and muddle into a paste using a muddler (or the back end of a spoon.) Pour in bourbon, fill with ice cubes, and stir.
