Old Fashioned, Louisiana Style


½ teaspoon of Cocktail and Sons “Spiced Demerara” syrup or 1 demerara sugar cube

3–4 dashes of Angostura bitters

3–4 dashes of orange bitters

2 ounces Rye whiskey

Splash of soda or sparking water

Orange zest


You will need an old fashioned glass or rocks glass as some call it. Use a muddler to crush sugar cube and combine with bitters or a spoon to stir syrup with bitters. Add Rye Whiskey. Then add one over sized perfectly formed ice cube and a splash of soda. (I make mine in the oversized square or sphere silicone ice cube trays.) Garnish with orange zest and sip slowly. Mmmmmm!
