Brandy Old Fashioned

10 min


2 large oranges cut into 1-inch wedges (to make 16 pieces)

8 ounces Brandy

12 dashes Angostura Bitters

2 teaspoons simple syrup

1 cup sugar

1 cup water

4 ounces sour mix

1/2 cup freshly squeezed lime juice

1/2 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice

8 Maraschino cherries


First, make the simple syrup by combining the water and sugar in a small sauce pan.

Bring to a boil and cook for 1-2 minutes, stirring until the sugar is dissolved.

Add a 1/2 cup of the simple syrup to a small bowl and mix with the lime and lemon juice, stir until combined.

Add 2 ounces of brandy, 3 dashes of bitters, 1/2 teaspoon of simple syrup, and squeeze 1 wedge of orange into a mixing tin, shake to combine.

Pour the mixture into a glass with 3-4 ice cubes.

Top with 1 ounce of sour mix, 2 cherries, and 1 more orange wedge.

You can save the remaining simple syrup and sour mix, separately, in an air tight container, in the refrigerator for 2 weeks.
