Old Fashioned

Sabrine Dhaliwal’s Old Fashioned. Dan Toulgoet photo.

The classic whisky cocktail.

• 2 oz Buffalo Trace bourbon
• 1 tsp granulated sugar
• 2 dashes Bittered Sling Kensington Aromatic Bitters
• Orange twist and brandied cherry for garnish

Add the sugar to an Old Fashioned glass, wet with bitters and (if using a sugar cube) muddle to dissolve. Add bourbon and a single large ice cube, stir for eight to 10 seconds and garnish with an orange twist and a brandied cherry.

*If you are using regular ice cubes, build and stir in a mixing glass and strain before serving.
