Old Fashioned at the ready

I love an old fashioned cocktail but don’t always have all the components in the house.  After this is made, I’ll have my favorite drink ready for when I’d like one.  Serve chilled and up or on the rocks with the optional splash of club soda.

Old Fashioned Bourbon

One bottle bourbon whiskey

16 dashes or so of anosturga bitters

10 cherries, pitted

peel of one lemon, pith removed

peel of one orange, pith removed

2 tablespoons of powdered sugar, optional

Combine all ingredients in a large glass container and cover.  Let infuse for five days.  Stir everyday or so.  Strain.  Bottle, label and distribute as gifts or keep if all for yourself.
