I paid 75 but I buy a lot there. He brings in good wine and good liquor at big discounts for good customers to keep is there. I live a county away from dallas and it's a dry county so he throws you a bone every now and then cause his prices on everything else are high since he is next to a dry county. Paid full for the Bowman also which helped with the deal.

I don't feel as bad now. Glad you got your hands on some. I opened mine the night i got it and had about an ounce. I'm not sure if it is the placebo effect, but it is really really damn good bourbon.

So, I recently starting making Old Fashioned and enjoy them quite a bit. Does anyone else drink these? If so, I would love to hear how you make yours.

Also, I got a bottle of Basil Hayden's recently and it's delicious.

I've never made one, only ordered at a bar. How do you make yours?
I make a simple syrup, a little sugar and a splash of water mixed together in the bottom of the glass, then add a couple dashes of Angostura bitters, then 2 oz's of bourbon, then I add 1 jumbo ice cube and let it sit for 4-5 minutes. Delicious.

Some recipes add a garnish of orange peel but I haven't tried that yet.

Just no frikkin soda water in my Old Fashioneds, damnit!

They are my go-to adult beverage, but I can't stand it when some dumbass bartender tries to muck around with a classic. Keep it simple. Just add a bit of simple syrup and bitters, muddle my cherry and orange, pour on the bourbon, and add a splash of water to top it off.

Okay, rant over.

I make simple syrup in boiling water-use a 1:1 ratio (usually a cup of each). With this drink I tend to go heavy on the bitters and prefer a cherry garnish but to each their own. Also if you want to have an interesting twist make it with Irish Whiskey.

This is exactly how I make mine. The garnish of orange peel works if you don't overdo it. No slices of orange or cherries in it like a lot of bars do.

I've tried an orange peel garnish since that post and I wasn't overly impressed. It was really fragrant and took away from the whiskey flavor. Maybe I just did too much, though.
