Since being introduced to premium bourbon this year I’ve been searching for the perfect signature cocktail.
I believe I’ve found it in the Old Fashioned.
Hey, you know me… I love the classics.
My quest this summer is to find the best Old Fashioned in the city. I believe the journey will begin this weekend.
Wish me luck.
But, if your local bartender can’t make one, here’s how you make a decent Old Fashioned at home:
2 dashes aromatic bitters
1/2 tsp sugar dissolved with water and bitters
2 oz premium bourbon
Combine the sugar, bitters and water in an Old Fashioned glass. Muddle well, add premium bourbon and stir.
Add a twist of lemon peel and ice cubes.
