    Made with buffalo trace bourbon and loved.

    Used 1/3 tsp turbinado sugar or dash of maple syrup in place of simple syrup, 2 dashes Angostura bitters and 1 dash Angostura Orange bitters to taste. Stirred together all liquids with the sugar, dropped in a better quality poked-open maraschino cherry, and stirred again. Mixed with handful ice cubes and orange wedge. Top with a splash of 7UP, ginger ale, lemon soda, or Squirt to taste. Could also use brandy in place of bourbon. A combo of bourbon and rye works very nicely.

    Great sipping. Nothing is overpowering. Used a smoked simple syrup. Great twist to flavors.

    Tasty drink! Used Michters Bourbon. Smooth and aromatic. Not too sweet and I prefer my bourbon neat.

    I like this recipe but I left out the teaspoon of water because I knew the ice would melt when stirring it really cold. I also used two pieces of orange peel and I muddled a cube of tourbenado sugar with one of the peels rather than using simple syrup. The tourbenado sugar cube adds a warm taste and the muddled orange releases the oil.

    Perfect! I also tried it smashing a cube of raw sugar whit black walnut bitter and fresh basil (I did not use simple syrup).

    Had to use triple sec rather than simple syrup and orange slice but still enjoyed it very much. The fresh cherries makes all the difference. Wish I had oranges.
