The Perfect Brown Sugar Old Fashion

a staple drink for any occasion

A simple twist on a classic cocktail with just a touch of sweetness. The name was inspired by the many drinkers who refused to change with the times and ordered their drinks the old fashioned way; a brown spirit, sugar, water and bitters. 

  • 1 tsp. packed brown sugar
  • 1 tsp. hot water
  • 2 dashes bitters
  • 2 oz. bourbon
  • Ice
  • Orange peel, for garnish
  • Amarena or Luxardo Maraschino cherries, for garnish
  1. Add brown sugar to warm water until it creates a simple syrup and is fully dissolved. Add bitters and bourbon and ice to glass and stir to combine. 
  2. Twist orange peel for a zest of flavor and add 1-2 cherries to garnish.
  3. Enjoy
