1 Sugar Cube (or 1/2 tsp of sugar)
2-3 Dashes of Angostura Bitters
Optional: Orange Slice
Muddle the Base: Place a sugar cube in an old-fashioned glass. Add 2-3 dashes of Angostura bitters and a splash of water.
Dissolve the Sugar: Muddle these ingredients together until the sugar is mostly dissolved.
Add Ice and Applejack: Fill the glass with ice cubes to your preference, then pour 50 ml of Canadian Applejack over the ice.
Stir Gently: Stir the mixture gently in the glass, combining the bitters, sugar, and Applejack while chilling the drink.
Express the Orange Peel: Take a piece of orange peel and twist it above the drink to release its oils, then rim the glass with the peel.
Garnish: Place the same orange peel in the drink. A simple twist of orange peel not only adds a fragrant aroma but also complements the apple notes in the Canadian Applejack.
