We all know that this was Amma’s favorite drink when she would go out for dinner.  I thought I would share how the drink is made so that we can make it whenever we want and have a Cheers to Amma <3 


  • 2 Ounces of Bourbon (Amma loved her Makers Mark)
  • 3 Dashes Angostura Bitters
  • 1 tsp Bar Sugar (this is an extra fine sugar for mixed drinks)
  • 2 Orange Slices
  • 2 Maraschino Cherries
  • Splash of Water or Club Soda



  1. Muddle carefully in the bottom of an old fashioned glass the sugar, Angostura, one orange, one cherry, and a splash of soda.
  2. Remove the orange rind and add Bourbon, ice, and soda or water
  3. Garnish with a fresh orange slice and a cherry


Cheers 😉
