I searched for this drink on this forum before posting this, and I found references to being stuck in your ways, and to donuts. Allow me to share the best use of that name out of the three.
1 large orange, ripe
1/2 tsp sugar
2 ounces Four Roses Kentucky bourbon
1. Add sugar and bitters to the glass. I know I use more of both and traditional recipes. Do you know why I use more? Because it’s my recipe, that’s why.
2. Squeeze some of the orange juice into the glass, and swirl around. Roll around the glass to distribute the sugar. You’ll understand why in a moment if you don’t already know.
Purists may point out that there is a tradition of muddling the sugar with the little wooden stick. This way works perfectly well.
3. Spreading the sugar around like this ensures that it will all dissolve. It doesn’t bother me, but I know some drinkers of this drink can’t stand sediment sugar on the bottom of the glass: it’s considered bad form. I just like it to be dissolved completely. These were exceptionally ripe oranges, and there was a lot of juice.
4. Add bourbon, and squeeze remaining juice into the glass. Stir to incorporate.
5. Most makers of this drink have already added ice, and they squeeze the juice into it. I like making sure the sugar is fully dissolved and the bourbon distributed, THEN adding ice as appropriate.
