  • 2 ounces Whisky
  • 1/2 ounce Maple Syrup
  • 1/2 ounce Cocktail cherry juice
  • 2 dashes Bitters
  • 3 Cherrys Garnish
  • 1 Orange Peel Garnish
  • 1 Cinnamon Stick Garnish


  • Measure out whisky, maple syrup, water, cherry juice and bitters into serving glass.
  • Add one large ice cube (if you have) or three regular size cubes.
  • With a spoon, give the cocktail a gentle stir.
  • Peel orange rind and give it a twist over the glass, the rind should produce a drop or two of juice, this is good! Finally run the orange peel over the rim and place it in the glass.
  • Garnish with a marchinano cherry, and a cinnamon stick.


Old fashion can be made with Rye (Canadian whisky), Jameson (Irish Whisky) or Bourbon (American Whisky). With old fashions, which already incorporate sugar, I prefer Canadian or Irish Whisky because it is not as sweet as bourbon and balances the cocktail well.
