The Old-Fashioned

So this is it. Everything's packed, all set for the big move to Barcelona. I'm excited, nervous, frightened ... but also hopeful. Hopeful that this is the first step in elevating myself, in reaching my goals. Who knows. It will certainly be an adventure. So let's raise a glass together for one final drink - in Toronto at least - of something classic and timeless, the Old-Fashioned. Many thanks and much appreciation to my loved ones for all the support and encouragement in the past 20 or so months. And now the real work begins. 

The Old-Fashioned

One sugar cube (white or brown sugar)
Orange bitters - Fee Brother's West Indian Orange Bitters
Angostura bitters
Bourbon - Maker's Mark Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whisky
Orange and lemon zest

In a mixing glass, place a cube of sugar, and saturate with Angostura and orange bitters

Add a splash of water and muddle until the sugar is completely dissolved

Add 2 ounces of bourbon

Fill to the top with ice and stir quickly for 25-30 seconds

Pour into a tumbler with ice if you wish; garnish with a lemon and orange twist
