    1 Sugar Cube (or 2 teaspoons Sugar)
    1 tablespoon Water
    2 dashes Bitters 
    2 1/2 ounces Bourbon 
    1 strip Orange Peel 
    1 Maraschino Cherry 
    In the bottom of a chilled old-fashioned glass, add the sugar cube and teaspoon of water. Using a wooden muddler, pulverize the sugar cube breaking up the crystals to create a syrup.  Add 2 dashes bitters. Fill the glass with ice, add the bourbon, and stir well. To garnish, twist the orange peel over the glass and top with a cherry.

    Helpful Tip:
    1. Brush the rim of the glass with an orange peel to add a hint of citrus.
