Regressive Cocktail for a Sleep Regression: the Old Fashioned

February 11, 2011

During the current sleep regression of Henry, we turn to this regressive, old-fashioned cocktail.

DD — not darling daughter, silly: Don Draper — makes his with rye.
We do bourbon.

Old Fashioned Cocktail


Shake bitters (Angostura) over the sugar cubes. My husband uses one cube. I use four. Two or three might be reasonable.
Pour bourbon over the sugar.
Muddle orange slices with it.
Add cherry(s).


2 oz bourbon whiskey
2 dashes Angostura® bitters
1 splash water
sugar cubes
1 maraschino cherry
1 orange wedge

    It is not quite clear to me who the recipient of this cocktail is in your household? The kid or the parent?
