    I have recently discovered this cocktail. I have also discovered not many places make them correctly either.
    In my research you use
    1 Good Rye
    2 sugar
    3 Aromatic bitters
    4 orange bitters
    5 ice
    6 twist of orange
    I have really been loving this drink.

    Thoughts?

    i like the rum old fashioned but the recipe i had did not have orange bitters just the Angostura bitters but yes this is an awesome drink. Really simple too, so i don't understand how some places mess it up.

    Never had one but I do like a Manhattan using a good bourbon (Woodford Reserve) so yea I'll give this a try. I'll see what my store has for a good Rye and back to you.

    This is how I do it. I muddle the sugar though because I like the process.

    My favorite restaurant drink for sure. Too much bitters will fuck it up big time, but the right amount sets it off.

    I like mine with Sazerac Rye or go no rye and order with Clyde May's.
