This is probably my favorite cocktail on the planet, but i've never made it at home. Initially I was worried about the "muddling", but the teaspoon worked perfectly.

Simple and great cocktail. Try the same process with another of your favorite spirit, it will likely work as well.

Simple syrup can be used as well, making it a bit easier instead of sugar and water. I usually put just enough to cover the bottom of the glass.

Great cocktail. I prefer a small amount of simple syrup and no more than two dashes of bitters. Great cocktail to personalize too with all of the different types of bitters and bourbons/ryes they offer today. Also, i like a good twist of orange zest over the slice. Sometimes a slice can make it cloudy.
