CLAREY’S Old Fashioned
a good time
About this Recipe
This simple, sophisticated, traditional cocktail can be made with Bourbon or Rye whiskey. Rye makes it a little sweeter. To pump it up a bit, try adding a bar spoon of an orange liqueur; we like Cointreau for that!
Any good Bourbon or Rye will make an excellent cocktail. We like Four Roses Single, Michters, Jefferson Ocean for Bourbons and Michters, George Dickel, or, for a very special cocktail, Angel’s Envy for the Ryes.
- 0.5 Tsp of sugar
- 1 Tsp of water
- 3 dashes of Bitters
- 2.5 ozs of good Bourbon or Rye
- 1 Tsp of Orange Liqueur (optional)
- Orange peel for garnish.
Add the sugar, bitters, and water into a Rocks Glass and stir/muddle until the sugar is mostly dissolved.
Add large ice cubes to the glass and pour in the spirit(s).
Gently stir until combined.
Twist an orange peel over the glass and drop in. Cheers!
