In a lowball glass, pour in the bourbon, 1/2 teaspoon maple syrup and a couple dashes of bitters. Stir to combine.
Add a large ice cube or several small, and gently stir in a circular motion until the drink is very cold, about 20 seconds. Taste, and stir in 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon more maple syrup if you prefer a sweeter drink.
Use a vegetable peeler to remove a hefty strip of orange peel. Gently twist it, skin side down, over the drink to release the oils. Then place the orange peel in the glass. Enjoy.
Measurement tip: Two ounces is 1/4 cup. I like to use this stainless steel jigger (affiliate link) for measuring small amounts of liquid.
*How to multiply: You can make a batch of Old Fashioned cocktails. Place a handful or two of ice cubes in a pitcher. Multiply the base ingredients (bourbon, maple syrup, Angostura) as necessary and stir them together. Pour into glasses with fresh ice.
