So here's what you'll need: Bourbon or Rye whiskey (I'm using Buffalo Trace), rich simple syrup (2:1), angostura bitters, ice, mixing glass, jigger, hawthrowne/julep strainer, rocks glass and a bar spoon. Optional items include: club soda and orange/lemon (and vegetable peeler) for garnish.
-2oz Rye or Bourbon
-0.25oz Simple Syrup
-3 dashes Angostura
-Stir over ice in mixing glass, and strain into chilled rocks glass
- Up to 0.5oz club soda (I don't care for it)
-Feel free to garnish with the peel of a lemon or orange
- If using ice opt for an ice ball or big cube
