Old Fashioned


This classic cocktail is a classic for good reason. It’s strong, but not too strong. Sweet, but just enough…and most importantly, it’s easy to make!


  • 2 oz Johnnie Walker Reserve
  • 2 dashes of Angostura Bitters
  • 2 tsp simple syrup (bring ½ cup sugar and ½ cup water to a boil and stir to dissolve sugar. Let cool completely before using)
  • 1 candied or maraschino cherry
  • 1 twist of orange peel


  • Fill a whiskey tumbler halfway full with ice.
  • Add remaining ingredients except for orange and stir with a swizzle stick.
  • Twist orange peel over the glass to release the essential oils and then stir the peel into the drink.
