So Old Fashioned
Revolution, Downtown Durham
This drink serves mainly to remind me that I’m picking up quite the bourbon habit in the South. It’s made with Booker’s Bourbon, orange bitters, sugar, and candied orange, though I can’t vouch for there actually being candied orange in the drink—anyone else notice how easily advertised garnishes fall by the wayside and don’t make it into a drink? Moving on from that tangent, the So Old Fashioned is a great vehicle for appreciating bourbon’s appeal. I’d double the amount of bitters, but otherwise, I was quite happy with it. The cherries helped.
