The low-calorie cocktail
- 1 oz applejack
- 1 oz rye whiskey
- 1 brown (raw) sugar cube
- 2 dashes of orange bitters (1:1 Fee Bros. West Indian Orange Bitters : Regan’s)
Build in a whiskey glass. Saturate the sugar cube with the bitters, and gently muddle in order to create a slightly granulated paste. Add rye and applejack, and rock ice. Garnish with an orange twist. “This alternative to the Old Fashioned comes in at 152 calories,” says Present, “and brown [raw] sugar is healthier than white sugar due to its higher mineral content.”
