Candied Old Fashioned

And speaking of favorite whiskey drinks, here is mine.  Basically it's an Old Fashioned, but I make it with homemade candied orange peel instead of orange slices and simple syrup.  Delicious drink, doing Don Draper proud.

Candied Old Fashioned
  • 3 pieces orange peel candy
  • 2 oz whiskey
  • 2 dashes bitters
  • splash cold water
  • maraschino cherry
  • ice
Place orange peel candy and 1 ounce of whiskey in a shaker and muddle together.  Transfer to a tumbler.  Add remaining whiskey, bitters and ice.  Add the water and stir to combine.  Plop in your cherry and enjoy.  Perfect summer drink.
