Cocktailing – Orange Old Fashioned Two Ways

image

We made two different types of Old Fashioneds this weekend.  The first, which Nick preferred, was more classic.  The second, which I preferred, was sweeter.

Version 1

  • 1.5 Ounces Whiskey
  • 3 Dashes Bitters
  • Orange peel
  • 1/2 teaspoon of sugar
  • Splash of soda

I used this recipe here.

Version 2

  • 1.5 Ounces Whiskey
  • .5 Ounces Tuaca
  • 3 Dashes Bitters
  • Orange peel and a splash of juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • Splash of soda.

They start the same – mix bitters, sugar, splash of soda, and orange peel then add whiskey.  In Version Two I simply mixed a squeeze of juice with the bitters and sugar and added a bit of Tuaca with the whiskey.

The verdict – either is delicious!
