An old fashioned is a really simple classic cocktail of sweetened bourbon with orange and maraschino cherry garnish. This recipe uses cranberry simple syrup in place of granulated sugar to bring out the holiday flavors and adds some orange juice for some added winter time vitamin C.
- 1.5 ounces of straight bourbon whiskey
- .5 ounce cranberry simple syrup
- .5 ounces of fresh orange juice, strained
- 2 dashes Angostura bitters
Stir bourbon, cranberry simple syrup, and orange juice. Pour over ice in an old fashioned glass. Add bitters and garnish with fresh cranberries and an orange twist.
