  • Author: Ellie
  • Prep Time: 5 mins
  • Total Time: 5 mins
  • Yield: 2 drinks 1x
  • Category: Drink


  • 6 ounces rye whiskey (we prefer Bulleit Rye)
  • 3 ounces water
  • 3/4 ounce simple syrup
  • 8 shakes of bitters
  • Orange rind
  • To garnish: bourbon soaked cherries


  1. Add all ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake vigorously for 5 seconds.
  2. In a rocks glass, pour the mixture over a large ice cube and top with a cherry.
  3. Take a slice of orange peel and pinch it to release the natural flavors and oils; run the peel around the rim of the glass and add it to the drink.
  4. Cheers!
