Last week, we bought some new whiskey, Cedar Ridge…(yes, it’s another one from our favorite Iowa distillery!) I thought I would try my hand at making another classic cocktail–Old Fashioneds.
Classic Old Fashioned
1tsp sugar (or 1 sugar cube)
2 dashes bitters
splash of soda or water
Place sugar in glass and add bitters and a little bit of water. Muddle to help the sugar dissolve. Add ice and whiskey. Garnish with cherry and lemon peel (we skipped the lemon peel.)
This one is delicious, but definitely a sipper! And perfect for happy hour!
That’s two cocktails down, one to go for the Summer Manifesto! Any suggestions on a good classic for the big finish in August?
