I just looked it up on the net… one sugar cube on the bottom of a rocks glass, one tsp of water on the sugar cube as well as several shakes of bitters ( I like a lot). I smash the sugar cube, then add two shots of bourbon and a big block ice cube. Tonight I am having Canadian Whiskey for a change.
I use a wood handled fork to crush the sugar cube... a tsp of water and bottlers softens the sugar and makes for easy muddling. I don’t use cherries at times and just peel some rind off the orange.I've got the cubes and the other stuff for this. I'll make one with Jim Beam tomorrow. I can use a mortar (or is it a pestle?) to muddle, right? Orange peel twist, no cherry.
I think mine is bigger - a regular size rocks glass sold at Macy’s. I pour two full shot glasses and this 100 proof rye is not for the young, as John Wayne would say. I’m on #2 and done for the even.Is your glass smaller than mine, or did you pour in more than 1 1/2 ounces? 100 proof???
I wish I could drink stuff like that, but it would blow my head off lol
The only thing I add to that is a pretty round slice of fresh orange. Enjoy!
