Serve in anOld-fashioned glass
Orange zest twist
How to make:
STIR bourbon with three ice cubes (dry to the touch well-frozen ice, not wet ice) in a glass. Add whiskey, sugar syrup, bitters and two more ice cubes. STIR some more and add another two ice cubes. And if you have room, add more ice before serving.
|1 2/3 fl oz||Bourbon whiskey|
|1/3 fl oz||Sugar-free sweetener|
|3 dash||Angostura Aromatic Bitters (optional)|

Despite being made with a dash of sweetener rather than sugar, or even Demerara sugar, this is a very palatable Old Fashioned and many will not be able to differentiate between the classic sugar-loaded version.
Adding aromatic bitters will help the cocktail's flavour but add trace amounts of sugar.
Adapted from the classic serve by yours truly in January 2019.
