Not every Old Fashioned needs to be a fruit bomb of sugar muddled with orange and cherry.
This method, as preferred by Head Distiller of Redwood Empire Whiskey, is a simpler, rye-forward take on the classic with a hit of orange zest.
- 2oz/24oz Emerald Giant Rye
- 3 Dashes/36 Dashes Angostura Bitters
- 0.5tsp/6tsps Granulated Sugar
Stir in a mixing glass and serve it over 1 large rock of ice. Top with a sprinkling of orange zest.
