The Proper Way To Make An Old Fashioned Cocktail

    There will be no muddled maraschinos, got it?

    First, get your ingredients together.

    We suggest you make more, but for one cocktail, you'll need:

    1 sugar cube

    3 dashes Angostura bitters



    2 oz. rye whiskey

    Orange peel (for garnish)

    Cube in the glass.

    Add bitters, an orange peel, and a splash of water.

    Then muddle!

    Add the booze.

    Then add ice, and stir.
