• 1.5 ounces Maker’s Mark Bourbon
• 0.5 ounces Hennessy Cognac
• 1 sugar cube
• 2-3 dashes Angostura bitters
• Orange twist or maraschino cherry for garnish


Step 1. Place the sugar cube in an Old Fashioned glass.

Begin by selecting your favorite glass, ensuring it's clean and chill. With gentle precision, optionally with tweezers, delicately place the sugar cube at the bottom of the glass, positioning it in the center to ensure optimal distribution of flavor as it dissolves into the cocktail.

Step 2. Add 2-3 dashes of Angostura bitters over the sugar cube.

Now, it's time to infuse your cocktail with a touch of aromatic complexity using our secret ingredient: Angostura bitters. Reach for your bottle of Angostura bitters and carefully drip 2-3 dashes directly onto the sugar cube.

This will add depth and character to the flavor profile of your Maker’s Mark and Hennessy Old Fashioned.

Step 3. Muddle the sugar cube with the bitters until it’s dissolved.

Using your muddler, gently press down on the sugar cube to dissolve it into the Angostura bitters. Apply steady pressure and stir until the sugar completely dissolves, creating a smooth mixture at the bottom of the glass. This step ensures that the sweetness of the sugar blends seamlessly with the aromatic flavors of the bitters

Step 4. Add the Maker’s Mark Bourbon and Hennessy Cognac to the glass.

 Stir 1.5 ounces of Maker’s Mark Bourbon and 0.5 ounces of Hennessy Cognac  to the glass.

Step 5. Fill the glass with ice cubes and stir well to chill.

Prepare your glass by filling it generously with ice cubes (depending on the glass from  3-4 cubes). Then, using a stirring utensil, gently swirl the contents until adequately chilled, allowing the ice to distribute its coolness evenly throughout the beverage.

Step 6. Garnish with an orange twist or maraschino cherry.

 Finish off your masterpiece by adding either an orange twist for a citrusy aroma or a maraschino cherry for a sweet touch. Simply place your chosen garnish on the rim of the glass, allowing it to enhance both the visual appeal and flavor of your drink.

Step 7. Serve and enjoy your Maker’s Mark and Hennessy Old Fashioned!
