dad’s birthday week: maker’s mark old fashioned
My wonderful dad’s birthday is this week, so in honor of him I am going to post some of his favorite things to eat and drink throughout the week!
The first is one of his favorite mixed drinks: the old fashioned. It’s a great whiskey drink with a sweet orange flavor. I like mine pretty bitter, so I don’t use a lot of the Maraschino cherry juice but you can adjust it to your liking.
Here’s what you’ll need to make it:
In a shaker, mix 1/4 c of Maker’s Mark bourbon, 2 tbsp of Patron Citronge, 5 shakes of bitters, and 1/2 tsp Maraschino cherry juice.
Pour over ice.
Garnish with an orange slice.
