The Old Fashioned Cocktail

The Old Fashioned Cocktail

We recently bought these glasses but hadn't gotten around to making their name-sake cocktail until now. The Old Fashioned is one of the classic cocktails with a whiskey base. We were happy with the ratios on our first attempt and the initial taste of the drink was delicious. We did find, however, that the whiskey quickly overpowers. This one is definitely for slow sipping.  Cheers!

Per Serving:
2 oz. Whiskey
1 Teaspoon simple syrup
Dash of Angostura bitters

Pour over an ice cube, twist the lemon peel or garnish over the drink and top with a maraschino cherry.
