The old fashioned cocktail is a classic not only since it's been around since, oh, before Lincoln's time (hence the name, perhaps). When you get down to it, the ingredients are delicious no matter what era you're in: it's sugary and orange-tinged if you have a sweet tooth, and filled with your favorite bourbon so it still packs a boozy punch. Bottom line: You can't go wrong with this cocktail. Below, we break down the easiest way to mix one up, just in time for happy hour.
Simply mix sugar, bitters, and water into a glass. Add orange slice (or orange peel). Muddle all the ingredients together at once. Finally, add the bourbon and some ice cubes and stir well. Serve and enjoy responsibly!
