Old Fashioned

2 oz Bourbon (sweet) / Rye (sharp)
1 tsp Simple Syrup
2 dashes Angostura Bitters
Splash of club soda / water

Use a cocktail shaker to blend the ingredients until chilled, then strain into a thick walled glass over a large ice cube or sphere. Garnish with an orange slice or twist. Some popular recipes call for cherries, but this affects the taste of the drink; if used, add as a garnish outside the liquid, such as on a cocktail pick.
