The Old Fashioned is a variation on the classic whiskey cocktail. We like ours with a slice of orange rind muddled with sugar and water. For less orange flavor, simply garnish with the orange rind; for more, muddle with a full slice of orange and rind.
In an Old Fashioned glass, muddle the sugar, water, bitters, and orange rind together until the sugar has dissolved. Fill the glass with ice, add the whiskey or bourbon, and garnish with the cherry. Serve with a cocktail straw.
