Old Fashioned Cocktail from Better Cocktails at Home

The Old Fashioned cocktail is a wonderfully simple drink from the early 1800s that is extremely easy to make at home. It is one of my favorites and I think you’ll like it too.

2.5oz bourbon whiskey
.25oz simple syrup
3 dashes Angostura bitters

Add all ingredients to a mixing glass. Add ice and stir. Strain over an ice filled rocks glass. Express the oil from the peel of an orange over the top and then drop the peel into the drink.
