Ginger Old Fashioned

Yields1 ServingTotal Time5 mins

 2 oz bourbon whiskey (or rye, if desired)
 0.25 oz simple syrup (or 1 sugar cube*)
 2 dashes ginger bitters
 Orange and/or lemon peel, for garnish
1

Place a large ice cube, or a couple regular ice cubes, in a whiskey glass (or small water glass or Tigger mug).

2

Pour the bourbon over the ice cube. Add the simple syrup and ginger bitters. Stir for 30 seconds, until cold and properly diluted. Note: I add the simple syrup after the bourbon, so the simple syrup doesn't settle at the bottom of the glass.

3

Twist the orange and/or lemon peel over the old fashioned. Tuck it into the side of the ice cube. Enjoy!

4

*If you're using sugar cubes: Use the handle of a wooden spoon to muddle the sugar cube with the ginger bitters. Add the ice and bourbon. Stir until cold and properly diluted, about 30 seconds. Finish with a twist. Enjoy!
