On this day (June 8) in the year 1042, Edward the Confessor was crowned becomes the King of England, one of the last Anglo-Saxon kings of England. In light of this fun and incredibly irrelevant fact, we decided to get classical with this old favourite drink!
45ml Bourbon or Rye Whisky (We Chose Wild Turkey)
2 Dashes Angostura Bitters
1 Sugar Cube
- Place sugar cube in the bottom of an old fashioned glass.
- Saturate the sugar cube with bitters.
- Add a dash of water.
- Muddle until the cube is dissolved.
- Fill glass with ice cubes.
- Add whisky.
- Garnish with an orange slice and a cocktail cherry.
Really depends on what kind of Bourbon you use, because it is the main player here. The sugar adds a nice sweetness and the bitters gives it a pleasant kick, but the bourbon is still the king. A much more sweetened version of itself on the rocks, but delicious. A Makers would be eloquent, Jim Beam smokey sweet, but we think a Wild Turkey would be the easiest to drink. It is quite strong since its a shot and a half of whiskey with bitters and a sugar cube, so keep that in mind when you try it. It is delicious though.
