Ingredients for an old fashioned

Perfect old fashioned steps

First step is to put the large ice cube in the glass. I use a smaller rock glass to freeze about 2.5 inches of water for my ice cubes. It works pretty well but is a little harder to get out of the glass than the plastic ice cylinder sets you can get online for about $10.

Large ice cube

Add 2 shots of rye whiskey

I typically use Rittenhouse or Bulleit as it is the best bang for your buck.

Add 1/2 ounce simple syrup

Add 4 dashes of bitters

Add a maraschino cherry

Add a slice of orange

Swirl the glass for about 10 seconds

Serve on a napkin and enjoy

Serve on a napkin and enjoy. That is all there is to it. Start by following the recipe to a T and then adjust as you see fit. After all, the perfect Old fashioned is what tastes best to you. Enjoy and please share this with your friends.
