  • cocktail stirring glass with strainer
  • bartenders spoon
  • jigger
  • peeler for garnish


  • 2 ounces whiskey (I used a Rye Whiskey for this one)
  • 3-4 dashes black walnut bitters
  • ½ teaspoon brown sugar
  • orange peel (for aromatics and garnish)
  • large ice cube


  • Prepare low ball glass with a large ice cube. Add whiskey, bitters, and sugar to a mixing glass filled with ice and stir for 20-30 seconds. Strain into prepared glass.
  • Slice off the orange peel, twist over glass to release some of the oils, and place the orange peel on top of the ice cube.


  • You could also try maple syrup for a sweetener for another layer of flavor and depth.
