THE MANREADY MERCANTILE OLD FASHIONED 

 

INGREDIENTS: 

1/2 teaspoon simple syrup

3 dashes aromatic bitters

2 ounces bourbon

3” of orange peel

1 ice block

 

PREPARATION:

Add all the above ingredients in the order listed and stir for 20 seconds. Make sure to only peel the orange with no pith. (Pith is the white part and is bitter in a bad way). Pinch the peel over the drink so that the oils from the orange “zest” the top of cocktail. The idea is for the oils to float so that you can get a slight burst of citrus with each sip. Add peel to cocktail.  Enjoy and repeat if needed.
