I love an old fashioned cocktail but don't always have all the components in the house. After this is made, I'll have my favorite drink ready for when I'd like one. Serve chilled and up or on the rocks with the optional splash of club soda.
Old Fashioned Bourbon
One bottle bourbon whiskey
16 dashes or so of anosturga bitters
10 cherries, pitted
peel of one lemon, pith removed
peel of one orange, pith removed
2 tablespoons of powdered sugar, optional
Combine all ingredients in a large glass container and cover. Let infuse for five days. Stir everyday or so. Strain. Bottle, label and distribute as gifts or keep if all for yourself.
