One of the great classic bourbon cocktails, the Old Fashioned was invented in Louisville, KY. Try bourbon, rye, or a blended whiskey in this cocktail. You can also sub one sugar cube for the simple syrup.

this is the classic recipe. It is missing something though. You will need 2 orange slices & 2 cherries. When you put the sugar cube/simple syrup & bitters in the glass, also add one orange slice and one cherry. This all gets muddled (squished) together, topped with ice and then the whiskey. Garnish as directed. DELICIOUS!

This was my late father-in-law's drink of choice. Definitely use "the good stuff" when making these and while you don't always need the orange slice just like the Manhattan the cherry is always necessary.

To make it more palatable (for those who don't like straight booze) a splash of club soda or 7 up is great!
