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.



Maker’s Mark Old Fashioned

1/4 tsp (or 5 shakes) bitters
1/2 tsp to 1 tsp Maraschino cherry juice

Fill a short glass with ice.  Add all ingredients to a shaker and mix well.  Pour into glass and adjust sweetness with cherry syrup.  Garnish with an orange slice.
