Rye Old Fashioned

  • 2 oz Redemption Rye Whiskey
  • 1 cube sugar
  • 3 dashes angostura bitters
  • 1 Luxardo cherry
  • Lemon swath

Mix sugar with a splash of water and bitters until dissolved. Add whiskey and 3 cubes of ice. Stir gently for 10 seconds. Place an oversized ice cube in an old fashioned glass. Strain slowly into glass. Swath lemon oils and zest on the rim, place swath on rim, not inside drink. Pat down cheery to remove excess syrup and place in glass.
