"Bourbon Old Fashioned's?" - Jerry Durrance

The first drink these two lovers share on a ship bound for South America is this classic cocktail, some say the oldest  known full-fledged cocktail... You need good bourbon for this one. The drink depends on it. 


Bourbon Old-Fashioned


2 1⁄2 oz bourbon

Sugar cube

Two dashes Angostura Bitters

Splash soda water


Place sugar, bitters and club soda in a mixing glass and muddle until sugar is dissolved. Add bourbon and ice. Stir until well-chilled. Strain and pour into an old fashioned glass over one big rock. Garnish with lemon and orange twist.
