Here's what you need:
- 2 oz. whiskey
- 1/2 oz. simple syrup (heat a cup of water, add a cup of sugar, stir to dissolve, store in the fridge.)
- Three dashes of Angostura Bitters
- Orange peel (organic is best, for obvious reasons)
Now you're almost done! Just that last special touch:
Et voilà! A drink that could cost you $10 in a fancy bar (yes, I've paid that much) for mere pennies.
Not that I plan to stop drinking in fancy bars, but it's nice to have the option of staying in to enjoy a fine cocktail (and no one has to be the designated driver). Great for parties, too!
