This is a recipe that I use currently that I find people to really enjoy…

Mediterranean Old Fashion recipe:

Ingredients:

  • 1¼ oz. Rye Whiskey
  • ½ oz. East India Solera Sherry
  • 2 dashes Blood Orange bitters
  • Garnish: Orange peel

Instructions:

First item is to build your drink in an old fashion glass. Combine all ingredients into the glass without ice.  Twist a wide orange peel over the top and drop into the drink. Add three large ice cubes and stir glass with a bar spoon in a circular motion 10 to 15 times. The stirring will let the ice dilute whiskey slightly without adding water and making a watery mess.
