The Old Fashioned is one of the most classic bourbon cocktails in existence - and one of the most classic cocktails, period! This is my Italian spin on the drink. It usually consists of bourbon, bitters, and a bit of simple syrup with an orange peel. My version includes my favorite North Italian Amarena cherries, and I use that luxurious cherry syrup instead of sugar and water. It gives the drink such a great rich sweetness, and of course, you need a few of the whole cherries on a skewer to complete the drink. Cin cin!

Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon Amarena cherry syrup from the jar

  • 2 dashes bitters, such as Angostura
  • 2 ounces bourbon or rye whiskey
  • Orange peel
  • 2 Amarena cherries, for garnish

Instructions

  1. In a lowball glass, add the Amarena cherry syrup and Angostura bitters. Fill the glass with ice cubes, and pour the bourbon over the ice. Stir with a cocktail spoon to combine.
  2. Take the orange peel and squeeze it gently to express the oils around the rim of the glass, then drop it into the glass. Garnish the cocktail with the Amarena cherries on a cocktail pick or skewer and serve.
