1 large and uneven slice of orange peel
1/2 brown sugar cube (or teaspoon simple syrup)
2 dashes Angostura Bitters
1 dash Regan's Orange Bitters No. 6
1 ounce bottled water
2 large ice cubes
2 ounces good Rye
Small triangle of orange slice for garnish (and perhaps a cherry)
1. Add the lemon peel, sugar cube and both bitters into the bottom of an Old Fashioned glass. The Deans insist on using an Old Fashioned glass for this drink.
2. Using a wooden muddler, begin to muddle the ingredients firmly in the bottom of the glass. Add the water, ice and then the Rye.
3. Stir with a spoon. Float the orange slice on top of the drink and serve.
