The Old Fashioned is a beautiful thing. At its best, it’s a careful balance of whiskey, sugar, and bitters, with a little dilution from water, often in the form of melting ice. Here, the classic goes pool-friendly, with a slushy blender version that relies on lots of ice, as well as fresh cherries to lend a little brightness and color.

  • 2 ounces rye whiskey
  • 1 ounce freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 1 ounce Simple Syrup
  • 6 fresh cherries (stemmed and pitted), plus 1 whole cherry for garnishing
  • 2 cups ice cubes
  1. In a blender, combine the rye whiskey, orange juice, simple syrup, pitted cherries, and ice cubes. Blend on high for 15 to 20 seconds.
  2. Pour into a glass and garnish with a fresh cherry.
