ten ingredients to create the perfect drink: the makings for and old fashioned.
drop sugar cubes in a rocks glass; sprinkle with bitters, add citrus wheels, cherry, and grenadine. using a muddler or the handle of a wooden spoon, mash just to release fruit juices and oils. add bourbon. fill glass with ice cubes; stir to combine. top with equal parts club soda and ginger ale (c/o bon apetit magazine).
