Bill Heck’s Old Fashioned


This cocktail is a fruitier, spritzy, almost punch like take on the usual Old Fashioned.

Ingredients :
2 sugar cubes
4 dashes of Angostura bitters
1 lemon wheel
1 lime wheel
1 orange wheel
1 maraschino cherry
1/2 teaspoon grenadine
1/4 cup bourbon or rye whiskey
Club soda
Ginger ale
Preparation :
Drop sugar cubes in a rocks glass; sprinkle with bitters and add citrus wheels, cherry, and grenadine. Using a muddler or the handle of a wooden spoon, mash just to release fruit juices and oils. Add bourbon. Fill glass with ice cubes; stir to combine. Top with equal parts club soda and ginger ale.
