4.6 from 5 reviews


  • 11.5 ounces bourbon
  • 1 sugar cube or teaspoon simple syrup (or agave nectar)
  • Dash or two Angostura bitters
  • Ice
  • Orange peel twist


  1. If you have a sugar cube, drop that in the glass with the bitters and mash it around to dissolve it. Then add the bourbon and stir.
  2. Otherwise, combine the bourbon, syrup, and bitters in a glass. Stir.
  3. Add ice and stir again.
  4. Garnish with a twist of orange peel, never a maraschino cherry. That’s for chicks.
