Ingredients

  • 2 oz. high quality bourbon Elijah Craig or Woodford Reserve
  • 1/2 oz. Cointreau or a good quality Triple Sec
  • 1 spoon orange blossom honey
  • 3 dashes orange bitters I used Regan's

Instructions

  • In a glass, mix the bourbon, Cointreau, orange blossom honey and bitters together with ice. 
  • Garnish with a candied orange slice or fresh orange slice. 

Notes

  • For this bourbon old fashioned, use a good quality bourbon. I like both Elijah Craig and Woodford Reserve. Jack Daniel's would also work, but I find it's a bit rougher for a cocktail such as this one. 
  • As for the orange liqueur, I used Cointreau, but any good quality Triple Sec works well. You could also use Grand Marnier, but the drink will have a bit more kick to it! 
  • This is a great cocktail to batch for parties. Just mix up the ingredients (sans ice) then measure into a glass with ice, stir and garnish!
