  • 2 ounces bourbon whiskey
  • 2 dashes Angostura Bitters
  • 3 teaspoons sugar
  • 1/2 cup orange juice fresh-squeezed
  • Orange rinds


  • In a small sauce pan, brown the sugar and orange juice. Don't cook it too long or it will become very thick.
  • Rub an orange peel around the edge of the glass you'll be serving the drink it, so it gives a beautiful orange aroma.
  • Add one slice orange rind, 1 teaspoon burnt orange sugar and muddle the orange rind and sugar together.
  • Add 2 dashes bitters and stir, then add in 2 ounces bourbon whiskey, stir again.
  • You can add a splash of club soda if you like it served that way, or just leave it a true Old Fashioned.
  • Place a few orange rinds on a cooking sheet and broil on low until the edges become a slightly burnt.
  • Add a giant ice cube to the cocktail and garnish with a burnt orange. Go back into time and enjoy!
