holidayscentral's picture
This recipe is from HolidaysCentral's 2012 Oscar's Best Picture Inspired Menu, where you can get the full menu and other fun holiday ideas. The classic Old Fashioned just screams old Hollywood, but just like Best Picture Nominee, The Artist, we've put a modern twist on the old classic. Using orange bitters, which is readily available at most grocers, adds a citrus kick to perfectly compliment your bourbon of choice.
  Bourbon 3 Ounce (good quality)
  Sugar 1 Teaspoon
  Water 1 Teaspoon
  Orange bitters 2 Dash

Dissolve the sugar into a glass with the water and the bitters. Stir gentle to ensure that the sugar has completely dissolved.

Add a few ice cubes to the water mixture and then pour the bourbon over the ice cubes.

If you’d like to get a little fancy with your bourbon old fashioned, many people add a few condiments to the drink. The accompanying condiments of choice for a bourbon old fashioned are a slice of lemon, a slice of orange and a maraschino cherry.
