I know my drinking has gone up since I started isolating but damn if I don't make a good old fashioned. Few places down here can really get the balance right, heck, many places make me a manhatten when I ask for an old fashioned.

@thatgeoguy do you have any tips? not that I've ever tried


@kai I mean aside from the basic recipe?

2 shots whiskey (usually rye)
1 shot simple syrup
2-3 dashes of bitters (angostura preferred)

Then when pouring always pour over a single large ice cube rather than many small ones (surface area, also only if on the rocks), and twist and fold the orange peel a bit before putting it in the drink.

@kai I usually leave it to sit for about 2 minutes or so once I throw the orange peel in though, so it can all mix together. But overall, it's very easy to do, and I'm surprised how often people screw it up.
