Ginger Old Fashioned

Servings 1

Ingredients
  

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

Instructions
 

  • Place a large ice cube, or a couple regular ice cubes, in a whiskey glass (or small water glass or Tigger mug).
  • 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.
  • Twist the orange and/or lemon peel over the old fashioned. Tuck it into the side of the ice cube. Enjoy!
  • *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!
