Old-Fashioned Recipe

What you will need for this recipe:

  • 2oz of your favorite bourbon
  • A sugar cube/1 teaspoon of sugar
  • 2-3 drops of Angostura bitters
  • An orange peel for garnish
  • Ice cubes
  • A lighter (yes, you read that right!)
  • And of course, a great whiskey glass



  1. Place a sugar cube/teaspoon of sugar in the whiskey glass. Add the bitters, bourbon, and ice cubes and stir. 
  2. Here is a step to impress your friends. Cut an orange peel and place in front of the lighter. Pinch the orange peel and see a small flamethrower in action! See here for a visual demonstration. 
  3. Rub the orange peel around the rim of the glass and drop it in your drink. Enjoy!
