Instructions
 

Auddie's Old Fashioned

  • In an Old Fashioned glass, place one large ice cube in the center of the cup. Then take the orange peel and tear it slightly in the middle of the peel to release the juices. Place peel on one side of the ice cube in your glass. Next take a cherry and gently press it together between your index and thumb finger to also release the juices. Place the cherry on the other side of the ice cube.
  • In a cocktail shaker add a few small ice cubes, bourbon, simple syrup, cherry juice (if using). Shake up a few times until chilled.
  • Pour over the ice in your Old Fashioned glass. A hefty drink and your weekend made is all about to be yours. Enjoy!

Simple Syrup

  • In a small sauce pan over medium heat combine water and sugar. Mix occasionally. Turn off heat once sugar has fully dissolved and your syrup is clear.
  • Pour into mason jar or other storage preference. Allow to cool before use. Stores in fridge for up to 1 month.
