Ginger Old Fashioned

  • 1 sugar cube (or 3/4 tsp. granulated sugar)
  • 2-3 dashes bitters
  • Ginger ale
  • 1-2 orange slice(s)
  • 2 maraschino cherries
  • Ice
  • 2 oz. brandy

Place the sugar cube in a short cocktail glass and splash it with the bitters. Add a dash of ginger ale (just enough to dissolve the sugar), an orange slice, and a cherry. Gently muddle to crush the fruit but not pulverize it. Fill the glass with ice cubes and add the brandy. Garnish with an additional orange slice and cherry, if desired.

  • Yields: 1 cocktail
  • Preparation Time: 5 minutes
