Tasmanian Old Fashioned
April 15, 2016
This whisky cocktail is an out-and-out classic of the 1960s that will make you feel like a sharp-suited Don Draper in no time.
1 thick slice orange peel
1 maraschino cherry, with stem
1 tsp sugar syrup (also sold as gomme syrup)
2-3 drops bitters
ice cubes, as necessary
50ml Sullivans Cove Bourbon matured malt whisky
twist of lemon peel, to garnish
Take the orange peel and squeeze it with your fingers. Rub the peel around the insides of a whisky tumbler, then place into the glass. Add the cherry, sugar syrup and bitters, along with three ice cubes.
Add half of the whisky and stir for about ten seconds. Add more ice and the remaining whisky and stir again for 10-15 seconds.
To serve, garnish with lemon peel.
